When John was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, there were no other indicators besides frequently needing to go to the toilet. After surgery and a prostatectomy, they realised that John’s cancer had gone beyond the prostate.
After having to go on a hormone treatment, John was aware that one of the side effects was the depletion of your upper body strength.
After having an initial assessment with one of Pinc & Steel’s physiotherapists, John quickly got involved with Paddle On – a stand up paddle rehabilitation program, for men and woman recovering from all types of cancer.
“Gradually with the support of the physiotherapists and the instructors, I started to discover what I could do - gaining strength, confidence and balance”.
“Paddle On for me was strength, support, fellowship and finding myself as an individual with potential again, rather than a cancer patient”. ❤️
