If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, we can help
We can help you To learn more about prostate cancer through guest speakers, books, DVDs and newsletters;
To make better decisions about what treatment to have (you can talk to men who have had the different treatments that you may be considering);
To meet others who are going through the same thing as you (avoid feeling isolated and alone)
We are a peer support group ( a group of men and women who have been affected by prostate cancer) who provide information, education and support. We are affiliated with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
Evidence shows that:
Peer support can reduce the psychological stress associated with prostate cancer diagnosis; and
Support groups can improve the quality of life and well being of people with prostate cancer and their carers.
If you need help before our next meeting, please phone one of the people listed on the Contact Page.
