Title: Prostate Cancer Awareness Charity Bowling Day
Post by: felipe on December 05, 2016, 12:06:31 PM
As most of you will be aware, we organised an Oral Cancer Awareness charity Bowling day at the Almeria Tenpin Bowling Centre earlier this year.

Following on from its great success we are in the process of arranging a Prostate Cancer Awareness Charity Day in aid of Walk for Life. Again at the Almeria Tenpin Bowling Centre.

It will be on Sunday 5th February 2017. We aim to surpass this year´s total of 2672€ and hit 3000€

Full details are here http://www.almeria-tenpinbowling.com/charity-day/ or here http://www.amigosbowlingleagues.co.uk/charity-day/

Application forms will be available at Almeria Bowling From Wednesday this week. Please ask the staff for a form. Our target is 150 bowlers in teams of 3. The general public will bowl against each other and not against any of the league bowlers.

Great prizes for the winning team. Entry is only 7€ for two games of bowling and free entry into the raffle. T-Shirts available for 7.50€ S, M, L, XL,XXL

Information on Prostate Cancer here http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/health-professional/cancer-statistics/statistics-by-cancer-type/prostate-cancer

http://prostatecanceruk.org/prostate-information/prostate-tests/psa-test

We are going to enquire about the possibility of having the PSA test available on the day for a small fee. This may or may not be practical. Watch this space.

A simple test or the finger can result in saving a life. So guys MAN UP AND GET IT SORTED!!

Yes Phil, very important to get regular tests. I get mine done with my usual blood tests through your GP, my one in Albox. Two of my friends got tested and were found to have prostate cancer and after treatment are both well and leading normal lives.

This is exactly why we are organising the bowling day. To bring awareness of how important it is to have the test done.

So please, get a team together and come and have some fun. The winning team gets a fabulous trophy each to take home for the year.

Thank you so much Felipe for bringing this to people's attention and for supporting Walk for Life, without our wonderful supporters we couldn't assist the many people we do at a time when they need it.

If you or a friend need our assistance please either call on 608762748 or send a pm to me and I will arrange a meeting to discuss your needs, all information discussed is kept private and confidential.

You may want to look up MEN UNITED, a group set up for the promotion of info on Prostate Cancer.
Bill Bailey is one of the patrons. I belong, and wear their badge proudly. It's amazing how many people ask what it is and then are surprized when I tell them.

The general blood test (PSA) for prostrate cancer is an indicative result and not  conclusive . If you are having any problems in this area, certainly have the PSA test followed up by a further examination. I had mine done in the UK last week.  :tiphat:

This is why we are holding the charity day. To try and get the message across as to just how important it is for ALL men to get one of the tests done.

Let us hope that we can get many many local people joining in the fun day. It is not only for raising money for Walk For Life but the awareness of Prostate Cancer.

So come you lot, get a team together and join in. :):):)

Rtis, if you are registered with a doctor go in and ask for a blood test. They will do this yearly for you to detect any problems. Make sure that you ask them to do a PSA test as well and they will, free to all registered.

Although my husband had no problems, I nagged him to get a PSA test done as a precaution. The test came back a little high 4.65, and he was referred to HO hospital. He was monitored for a year with the PSA levels decreasing. The consultant decided the levels were not coming down fast enough and he was referred for a biopsy. This detected cancer. Initially it was proposed that the treatment would be to insert radio-active pellets into the prostate to kill the cancer. However, a MRI showed the cancer was in both sides of the prostate. Radiotherapy or surgical removal were the two options. My husband opted for surgery. Now he is cancer free though being monitored regularly. I cannot stress enough, how important it is for you guys to get checked regularly even if you do not have any symptoms.

We now have the following businesses that are sponsoring some lanes.

The Corner Shop Albox,
Sol Supermercado
The Garage (4 lanes)

If any other business would like to sponsor a lane please get in touch.

Also, anyone wanting to bowl but does not have a team we can sort that for you. Bowling is a fun sport among friends, so why not join in the fun and help raise much needed funds for Walk for Life.

There is no reason why not. I am happy to make teams up with a bunch of billy no mates. Who know, you may well become good friends. That is really what the day is all about. Making people aware of prostate cancer but also to make new friends. Bowling is great for that. So anyone taht wants to bowl but is not in a team just drop me a PM and I will sort it for you.

Since I started bowling 4 years I now have a whole host of great people that are great friends. All of whom have shown that great friendship during the last year.
