Self Defence against Cancer May 12th, 2006
Noosa residents may learn how to ward off the threat of cancer by attending a series of free monthly presentations being hosted by the Noosa Library and Queensland Cancer Fund in the Library Meeting room at Wallace Park, off the Eumundi Road/Gibson Road roundabout at Noosaville.
On May 25th, from 10.00 to 11.30 am Kelly Hart from Breast Screen, Nambour will address the topic of Breast cancer. Cervical cancer will be under discussion at the same time on June 22nd; Prostrate/Testicular cancer on July 20th and Bowel cancer will bring up the rear guard on August 21st. (Although the sessions are free, please contact the Library on 5442 4411 to reserve a seat.)
Morning tea will be served on each occasion and on May 25th the Library will also be hosting a Biggest Morning Tea fund raiser for the Cancer Fund, serving gold coin 'cuppas' with cake, in the foyer between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm.
The Cancer Fund people tells us that each year cancer affects the lives of many Australians, but the good news is that 75 per cent of all cancers can be prevented or successfully treated if detected early enough. Everyone should be aware of the simple measures they can take to protect themselves and maintain their health.
For example, finding and treating breast cancer early provides the best chance for effective treatment. Over 11,300 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia each year and around 2,500 women die from the disease. More than half of all new cases are discovered by women or their doctors noticing a change in their breasts. The key is to familiarise yourself with the normal look and feel of your breasts. Being aware of changes is most important even if you have regular mammograms.
