Information about our Support Group Meetings

When you first discover that you have prostate cancer it can be a huge shock to you and your family. It's a time when you will probably feel reluctant to talk, however, you could get a lot of comfort from talking to someone who has treated and been cured. Our first priority is to provide support and comfort, based on personal experiences, to men who have been recently diagnosed with or have had prostate cancer. We aim to raise awareness of the consequences of prostate cancer and, just as importantly, to encourage partners and families to appreciate how necessary it is that they support men in seeking advice.
FOPS are able to reassure, console and share experiences with anyone anywhere who finds themselves concerned about or suffering from, any form of prostatic malfunctioning.

Our team treat everything you talk about in the strictest confidence and you can have as much or as little contact with our group as you wish. Wherever you live, if you would like a quick chat with someone who's 'been there' and will be able to provide a shoulder to lean on feel free to 'Contact Us'. Within our group, we have Health Care Professionals and links with other specialist charities too.

Once again - we look forward to welcoming you. If you have any questions please do call us.
