Support Groups

men's discussion groupProstate Cancer Support Groups in Maine are a resource for prostate cancer survivors and their loved ones. Interested in starting your own prostate cancer support group? Here are some suggestions.

Why a support group?

  • Support Groups are places to listen, ask questions, and share thoughts confidentially.
  • Our goal is to help men and their loved ones learn more about how to cope with living after a cancer diagnosis. We strive to provide a forum to learn about treatment and post-treatment options through presentations by medical professionals, written materials, and most importantly, discussion with other men who are having or have had similar experiences. (Many groups welcome partners as well.)
  • Gaining and sharing knowledge helps everyone cope and achieve better outcomes. All meetings are free to all participants.

Who are we?

  • Newly-diagnosed / pre-primary treatment (lots of questions)
  • Post-treatment / some side effects (some experience, still learning)
  • Post-treatment / post-side effects (lots of experience, helping others, still learning)
