A new-look support group for men diagnosed with cancer will kick off at the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre this month.
The Men Against Cancer group aims to attract more men to get behind one another in their cancer fights.
The first gathering on Tuesday, October 29 from 12pm will include a question and answer session with the Border's newest oncologist Brett Hamilton.
Cancer patient Mel Jackson hoped more "brothers in arms" would come together in support.
"It's good to get alongside men who are in the same battle as you," he said.
"There's a lot to be learnt from each other and men can be an encouragement to one another in times of adversity.
"Secondly, this will give men the opportunity to get information from experts that they can use in their own personal cancer journey."
