Paul Reade was diagnosed and treated early – now its checks to confirm he remains clear

Parley Rotary has moved quickly to arrange a second prostate ‘clinic’ following the success of the first – it was fully booked within days of being announced.

To attend for a free check at the second Parley Rotary hosted ‘clinic’, men from Parley and surrounding areas are invited to book by ringing either Jim (01202 580436) or Allan (01202 691710). The clinic is being staged in association with the Prostate Cancer Support Organisation (PCaSO) at the Parley Country Club at 275 Christchurch Road between 6 and 9pm on Thursday 28 April.

Blood checks are by appointment only.

Parley Rotary club member Paul; Reade (56) counts himself lucky that he attended the ‘clinic’ run last year Not only was he diagnosed early, he’s already had treatment. So, instead of allowing cancer to get a grip, he now has a six monthly blood check to confirm that he remains clear.

As Paul will tell you, the check is a simple pin prick on the finger, an on-the-spot analysis of the resulting blood droplet and confidential feedback, all within 15mins. “My check came up amber, I was advised to visit my GP for a full test… and the rest is history,” he says.

Voluntary donations of up to £10 will be accepted to help recover ’medical’ costs.
