'Silent killer' warning from freemasons

Bucks Free Press: 'Silent killer' warning from freemasons 'Silent killer' warning from freemasons

THE dangers of a 'silent killer' have been highlighted by members of the Freemasons who hope to save lives through talking about prostate cancer.

Members of Amersham Lodge, which meets at the Masonic Centre in St Peter Street, Marlow, have raised £250 to educate the people of South Bucks about the disease.

They handed over the cash to Chiltern Prostate Cancer Support Group at St Mary and St George’s Church in Dashwood Avenue, Sands, High Wycombe.

Amersham Lodge’s charity secretary, Dr Richard Waterfield, 75, of 43 Stubbs Wood, Chesham Bois, Amersham, said: “I am one of four Amersham lodge members who are recovering from prostate cancer.

“It is a silent killer, because people choose not to talk about it. That’s a mistake.

“We want to encourage men to check themselves for the early signs of the disease. And to discuss it with their family and friends.

“Early detection and treatment is the best way of fighting prostate cancer. Talk about it. Now. Before it’s too late.”

The condition affects one man in six in Bucks.

The cash will help promote a wide network of support volunteers.

Deputy head of Marlow and Bucks Freemasons, Clifford Drake, said: “Freemasonry is all about friendship, decency, and charity, so Amersham Lodge’s battle against prostate cancer is an excellent example of how ordinary people in south Bucks can take action to fight this silent killer.”

If you remove the %20 which has crept into the 'more on Freemasons' link, the page will load.
So, nothing to do with secrecy, just bad html formatting by the BFP
