Both Wayne and Gwen have recently completed the Camino de Santiago which has been an important Christian pilgrimage route for over 1000 years. It begins in St Jean Pied de Port in France and traverses 799km along the top of north- western Spain to Santiago de Compostela. While not suggesting this walk is what was envisaged for all cancer sufferers, it will be interesting to compare the experiences of a prostate cancer sufferer with Gwen’s. Come along and feel free to discuss your situation with people in like situations as you.
