Peer-to-peer support groups provide emotional stability for survivors and their loved ones and give the chance to expand upon the information their physicians have provided. If you were recently diagnosed, currently being treated, or were previously treated for prostate cancer, you and your significant other are invited to join us at the next support group meeting. We are a group of healthcare professionals, patients, family members, and friends dedicated to dealing with prostate cancer together.
