It is a great pleasure and a privilege to be writing an opening paragraph or two in this NEW edition of Prostate Matters. I have only been in my position as acting chairman for a few months, and these have been both exciting and challenging. I have been privileged to be part of the evolution that Tackle has been going through over this past year with our upgraded website, new branding and strategy. There are many plans for the future which will be covered elsewhere in this edition. This re-launch of Prostate Matters is just one of them and a visual statement of Tackle’s commitment to working with you.
Change does not always come easily. Coming together and working in harmony are the main keystones for success. We all share the same vision of ensuring that the needs of people living with and affected by prostate cancer are met, and that their voices are heard. Tackle is here to support your Group in any way that we can.
I firmly believe that Tackle is now stronger in many ways than it has been for a while. I look forward to our future together.
Steve Allen, Interim Chair
