Men are Talking – Timon Colegrove

“I’m sorry to have to tell you, Mr Colegrove, it is cancer”. Are the words Timon heard from his specialist when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2018. Today, he lives his life free of cancer, thanks to his proton beam therapy treatment at Rutherford Cancer Centres. However, his treatment wasn’t readily offered to him in the first instance, and at this event, he will give his patient perspective on how he sought out the treatment that was best for him and how it gave him his life back, unblemished, and free of side effects. Find out more about Timon’s story.
