A new initiative being launched at Budleigh Salterton’s health and wellbeing hub aims to give prostate cancer sufferers a place to talk.
The Exmouth and District Prostate Support Group is set to hold two drop-in sessions at the hub this month to give sufferers a chance to discuss the disease and its effects.
The first session is on Tuesday, April 23.
Group chairman David Warner, who himself was diagnosed with the disease 15 years ago, said: “Particularly when you are first diagnosed, it is really scary – you think the world is coming to an end.

“People at that stage do need support and want information.”
In addition to the meetings – taking place between 10am and 11.30am - the group offers a series of talks and social events for patients and their families in an informal setting.
