We are meeting again
After many months of Zoom meetings we are now able to meet up again face-to face
At our monthly meetings we provide support and friendship for men and their partners affected by Prostate Cancer. Members help each other by sharing experiences and by offering mutual support. Your concerns are not unique and you are not alone. Our members understand what you are going through; they've been there themselves.
We have regular talks by healthcare professionals and we run a weekly exercise class.
Meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month between 2 and 4 pm at the Loddon Vale Indoor Bowls Club in Basingstoke. A specialist cancer nurse comes to most meetings where members can talk in confidence.
We are supported by Prostate Cancer UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and by Tackle.
All are welcome; membership is free; just come along.
" I hadn't really spoken to anyone about how I was feeling after my diagnosis but I found someone who understood. I felt better just talking to them "
" I could see that what I felt about my husband's illness was not unique. Others had the same concerns, particularly about the future"
