We meet on the 2nd Monday of every month, except August. There is no charge and we welcome companions and families to join us as well.

Monthly meetings provide a forum for medical experts to inform group members about treatment options and post-treatment issues. Though we do not offer medical advice, we do feel it is important for men to take control and make informed decisions based on factual information to plan a course of action.

Whether you are recently diagnosed, are currently under treatment, or wish to learn more about prostate cancer you are welcome to attend.
