Prostate Cancer Support Group
Help is at Hand
Many people feel alone and at a loss when they have a diagnosis of cancer - and many men feel uneasy about getting involved in health services. Talking to others who have experienced these feelings can help those affected to cope with, live with and manage the effects of the illness.
Who Can Attend?
The High Peak Prostate Cancer Support Group is open to anyone affected by prostate cancer. This can be the person with the cancer, wives, partners, carers and friends. The group is run by members of the group, in partnership with the Macmillan Living Well Service Lead Practitioner and Living Well Service counselor.
What Happens at Meetings?
Group meetings provide an opportunity for those affected by prostate cancer to talk and share ideas about how to live as well as possible with prostate cancer. Guest speakers are invited to present and answer questions on issues related to prostate cancer eg. treatment decisions, managing side-effects, relationships.
