DOWN by the banks of the Condamine, you may not find bullfrogs doing the hanky panky, but there may a group of happy folk strolling around from bank to bank.

Warwick's Cancer Support group gather every Thursday by the river at Queens Park where they laugh, share stories and keep active.

Group organiser Jan Byrne said the social get-together was a chance for anyone who had suffered from, or was currently battling, cancer to meet up and share stories while walking along the river.

"We meet at the weir and have a chat and then walk along the river," Mrs Byrne said.

"Sometimes we do Tai chi."

The group has been meeting up since February after Mrs Byrne decided to give back to the charity that helped her when she battled with cancer.

"I got an email through the Cancer Council saying they were looking for volunteers and group leaders," Mrs Byrne said.

"The Cancer Council has been so good to me through my two journeys with cancer so this was a chance to give back."

Member of the group Erica Moore said she loved getting together each week.

"It's such a happy group I just love getting together," Mrs Moore said.

"It's nice to talk to people who actually understand and know what you're talking about."

The group has recently recruited two males and have welcomed anyone who wants to join in to come along.

If you are interested, contact the Queensland Cancer Council helpline on 13 11 20 and ask for survivor program co-ordinator.

Once you register with the Cancer Council, they will contact Mrs Byrne so she can give you a bell and let you know where and when they meet each week.

For more information, phone Mrs Byrne on 4661 3983.
