Di Prinzio Concreting’s new pump truck "SHAZ" raises funds and awareness for the local community's cancer research and counselling services. SHAZ was officially launched during the New Knights home game against the Roosters. The iconic pink and blue truck will raise funds for ProCare in support of our free cancer counselling and mental health support services.

TMS: Now available at ProCare
TMS uses non-invasive magnetic pulses to stimulate the prefrontal cortex of the brain to activate positive mood pathways:
When an electrical current passes through a TMS coil, it generates a magnetic field that passes into the brain without resistance.
This magnetic field acts via induction to produce electrical activity in the underlying cortical neurons.
If the stimulation is provided above a certain threshold, these neurons will depolarise.
The repeated firing of local cortical neurons induces an effect similar to long-term potentiation.
