Meet David King, the newest member of the Dumfries team of Buddies.
A proud Doonhamer, born in 1968 currently working for R.D.Nairn Civil Engineers.
Married to Yvonne, with one son and two grandchildren. A very keen golfer, having been Club Champion at a couple of ‘local’ clubs.
His Prostate journey started in February 2021 when he went for an eye test of all things and they found a little blood spot behind his left eye, diagnosed with P.C.
The support he received from his wife, son, wider family and friends, has been overwhelming. When he tells people what he is going through, they tell him he too young but now, having lived with Prostate Cancer, he knows it can affect men of all ages not just ‘auld men’.
Anyone diagnosed with Cancer has their own unique journey. Speaking to others who have lived with it helps. Men he has golfed with have overcome it and also, speaking with the guys at Prostate Buddies D & G has helped him, as they have all been through it and are happy to share their experiences. The Buddies are a very welcoming bunch and you can say anything you feel.
We look forward to your contribution at our monthly meetings – welcome on board David.
