On Thursday 12th and Friday 13th March I attended this forum in Port Macquarie.This forum was an opportunity to listen to keynote speaker, Professor Philip Hogg, who works for the University of NSW and is currently involved in developing an anti-angiogenic drug which prevents a blood supply from getting to the blood vessels which allow cancer cells to grow and spread. One of the evening speakers was Petrea King who founded the Quest for Life Foundation. Petrea spoke about the qualities that she has discovered are present in those patients who successfully deal with their cancer. She spoke of the need to find our own healing path. The people who survive live a changed life. The following day the Prostate Cancer facilitators were involved in workshops relating to the role of facilitators, with Petrea King whilst other delegates attended sessions on Advocacy ( Connecting communities), Events (Fundraising), Cancer networks and Cancer Services( an overview of information and support services ).
