Georgia Prostate Cancer Support Groups

If you are dealing with prostate cancer, you need not be alone. A support group can provide a continuing opportunity to learn about the various aspects of the disease, and to share experiences and feelings with others. Most meetings provide an educational program presented by a professional in the field followed by an open discussion session. Partners are encouraged to attend most groups. For additional information, contact the leader indicated below. If you are aware of other groups or changes to the listed information, please send email to: info@nationalmtpcc.org.
