Prostate Cancer Support Group
June 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
You are not alone. Island Prostate Cancer Support Group is a place to meet and hear from men who have had, or are going through treatment themselves, as well as listen to leading doctors and speakers in the field. If you don’t live in Victoria, but would still like to hear from our guest speakers we provide the video from each speaker series here. Our Prostate Cancer Support Group provides:
- Information – A venue for sharing information, both in a formal format through presentations from medical professionals, and through informal discussion with other group members.
- Peer Support – A caring environment where anyone touched by prostate cancer can discuss their situation and bring up concerns and issues with others who have experienced the disease. This can be tremendously reassuring for those who are newly diagnosed. Members from the group also provide hospital visitation for those receiving surgical treatment.
This month’s speaker is Marita Poll, Clinical Counsellor, BC Cancer Agency. She will be speaking on the topic of Fear of Recurrence. **Please note: this will be a 90-minute interactive presentation**
