We are a group of men and family members most of whom have direct experience of Prostate Cancer, and we seek to offer help and support to anyone in South Warwickshire and surrounding areas affected by this condition.
If you have been recently diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, are undergoing testing, or are deciding on - or beginning - treatment, it can be an extremely stressful and worrying time. Whatever you are facing, it's almost certain that some of our members have already experienced something similar, and we aim to reach out and support you.
How can we help?
We hold group meetings every other month (normally in Stratford-upon-Avon, but on Zoom if restrictions dictate), and because we are a smaller group (typically 20-25 attend), we are able to make time for everyone to say what's on their mind. We also hear about the latest developments in diagnosis and treatment, and have expert and interesting guest speakers. We warmly invite you to join us.
We also offer smaller informal local groups, centred on Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa and Shipston-on-Stour, which usually convene in-between the main meetings for a chat over coffee, and offer a welcome and more personal support to new members.
For those needing urgent support, feeling lost, or facing treatment decisions, we also offer one-to-one support via a "buddy" system, where we try to match you up with someone who has experienced your situation.
Please give us a call if you would like to join us, or if we might be able to help you. Contact Doug Badger, the Support Group organizer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01789 488422, or text 07784 545513
Next Full Meeting
Our next full meeting is to be held both in person at the Shakespeare Hospice, and simultaneously via Zoom on Wednesday 18th May, 2022, 2.30pm to 4.30pm. You can attend either way, and virtual attendees will appear on a large screen in the meeting room.
If you're not already on the mailing list, please contact Doug for an invitation. As ever, all are welcome to attend.
Local meetings offer a chance to chat informally over a coffee, and are resuming in July as below. All are welcome. Please contact us if you would like to be put in touch with a local group organizer.
