About the group

The Group commenced in 1997. It comprises men who are survivors of prostate cancer and their partners. While members of the Group do not provide medical advice they can help the newly diagnosed man, his partner and those concerned for his welfare to understand the treatment options available and how these options can be accessed. They can also provide perspectives on what may lie ahead after treatment has been undertaken. Views and information from members of the Group can be obtained through attendance at monthly meetings or by contacting individual members. 

Informal monthly meetings at which about 25 to 30 people attend are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month except in December. Membership is free and open to all. At meetings the exchange of information and provision of advice and support occurs through presentations, discussions and networking. 

In the ACT and southern NSW region the Group is active in promoting awareness about detection and treatment of prostate cancer. This is achieved through a range of activities including addresses to work groups and associations, information stalls at community and other events and advocacy on behalf of those affected by this highly prevalent disease. The Group maintains a library of print and audio-visual materials and sends a monthly newsletter via email to over 100 people in the ACT and NSW. 

Details about the Group's activities and contact persons are available through the group's web site: prostate-cancer-support-act.net

The views expressed on our website are those of the Prostate Cancer Support Group - ACT Region Inc. and are not necessarily those of the PCFA.
