Men Against Cancer Prostate Support Group

An important component of the Gift of Life’s commitment to its Prostate Cancer Program is to make it available support before, during and after treatment. Men Against Cancer (MAC) addresses these needs through monthly meetings for prostate cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, family and friends. These meetings offer an opportunity for men to meet others who share their experiences, as well as speakers that provide information to strengthen recovery and one-on-one support.

 I can really depend on the prostate cancer support group to give me the hope to keep battling cancer. From valuable medical information to the camaraderie of other survivors, I always leave feeling better than how I arrived. – Prostate Cancer Survivor
