Put-up and shut-up?

One of the things we try to encourage awareness of is our Health.

It's an often-overlooked subject, and us blokes don't always pay attention to those little
niggling aches, pains and twinges we associate with getting older.

We all know we're not as young and agile as we used to be, so self-maintenance is even more important,
and the old-fashioned attitude of "put-up and shut-up" might find you in an early grave!

We're not suggesting you talk to a complete stranger about any problems you have, so come along, make a
few new friends, and talk to a friend about it. After all, we're all in the same boat here. The chances
are one of us has already experienced the same thing! Some of our members already have Prostate issues and early Dementia.

Did you know that, caught and treated early enough, Prostate Cancer is almost 100% curable?
The 5-year survival rate for most men with local or regional prostate cancer is almost 100%.
Ninety-eight percent (98%) are alive after 10 years, and 96% live for at least 15 years.
For men diagnosed with prostate cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, the 5-year survival rate is 29%.
Don't take our word for it, go to Prostate Cancer UKs website and learn for yourself. Then if you have ANY doubt's, go and see a doctor.
It's a simple painless process and could save your life!!!
