Prostate Cancer Support Toronto Peer Support Meetings – 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
These meetings are held on the FIRST and THIRD Tuesday evenings of each month except on statutory holidays, currently on Zoom on the first Tues. and in person on the third Tues. A link to register for the next meeting can be found here shortly before the meeting.
Our meetings provide an opportunity for you to talk in complete confidence with prostate cancer survivors. These meetings draw 30 to 40. There is usually someone there who has had the treatment you are considering. This gives you an opportunity to talk directly to the men who’ve been through the various treatments. Our meetings provide an opportunity to come together to talk with others about managing life with prostate cancer. Parking is FREE and there is a refreshment break, during which time you will have the opportunity to talk “one on one” with anyone you choose. Note: we cannot give medical advice, but can share our knowledge of treatments and experiences.
At one time, female spouses/partners, caregivers and other supporters had separate meeting at the same time. Now they are encouraged to come to the regular meetings, both on Zoom and in person.
There are also 2 subgroup meetings: Warriors, dealing with more advanced prostate cancer, and the Quality of Life Group, for men and women needing more emotional, as opposed to more medical type, support.
