FOPS Support Group Meeting

7th December 2016

At the FOPS Support Group we all have at least one thing in common - most of us have or have had a serious prostate problem or know someone who has. We exist to help men, their partners and their families at a time when they are worried about prostate cancer.

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 somone who has treatment 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.

This month is our annual Christmas get together, which we will try to make as light-hearted as possible, but not so light-hearted for the turkey, presently running around a field in Kent, which Phil Nisbett has earmarked for our raffle again this Christmas (let’s be clear – it’s the turkey that is being raffled, not the field). Another member, Martina, has, through her late-husband Dave’s involvement with the English National Opera in St Martin’s Lane, London, donated two tickets for a performance of the Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan. These tickets are for a matinee in February and are valued at almost £200. The proceeds of the raffle will, we hope, go a long way to paying for the venue hire for the support group and related costs.

We look forward to welcoming new and previous visitors to our next meeting!

From 7.30pm to 9.30pm at The Junction, Christ Church, Chorleywood.

Our Aims

The FOPS greatest accomplishment is that, working together, we have helped, and will keep on helping, men affected by Prostate Cancer (also known as 'Tiger Cancer') turn themselves away from their personal precipices and get their lives back together. Learn more...

Personal Stories

Phil's Story I have worked for myself for the majority of my working career and have kept myself fairly fit. On looking back on the 2 years before I was diagnosed with P.C. I was getting very tired in the late afternoons, but put this down to business pressure and old age. After having a healthy sex life, I was... Read more...
