Support Groups

 
About PCCN
 
Our network of local, independent support groups blend well with PCC’s national strategies, putting a local face in the media and with the general public.

PCCN affiliated groups are encouraged to ‘work local, think national’ because one voice on the national stage makes messaging more powerful and also gives increased visibility to local efforts and activities.

Group work includes monthly meetings, one-on-one hospital visits, newsletters, awareness sessions, parades, and presentations at health fairs and service clubs like Rotary, Gyro, and Lions. Our local groups enjoy excellent relationships with medical professionals in their community and these men and women give freely of their time and present timely talks to help educate and consult.
 
While prostate cancer is exclusively a male disease it sometimes has a profound impact on the family unit. Many groups recognize this and facilitate special meetings for women only. These small meetings allow women to share their feelings and concerns in a non-threatening, intimate manner.
