Bob Healey

My name is Bob Healey, I was diagnosed with Advanced Prostate cancer in 2007 the same year that I was due to retire. When I was told by my Urologist that I had Prostate Cancer both my wife and I felt the bottom had drop out of our world and I certainly thought I wouldn’t see that Christmas.

As with all people with a diagnosis like this we were then on a steep learning curve and when we found out about Prostate Cancer Support North West through their Helpline things began change especially when we paid a visit to our local support group in Oldham where we found a warm and friendly welcome and were given a great deal of help and support, which still carries on to this day.
