Patient and Family Support Group Preamble
This support group meeting is a place of refuge for those affected by cancer. To preserve the safe space that our meetings provide, we remember that each one of us is on a journey all our own, and we honor the decisions of others as being exactly right for them. We also afford all members the opportunity to finish the thoughts they choose to share. We ask members not to cross talk which includes several people talking at once or engaging in conversations back and forth between two people, thus not giving the broader group an opportunity to share. This mutual respect is central to the support and strength that our meetings are meant to provide. We also ask that you respect the anonymity and confidentiality of each member. What you hear here, and whom you see here, let it stay here.
As of August 31, 2013, the
American Cancer Society (ACS)
dropped sponsorship of all Man to Man
support groups in the US. No
reason was given.
The name of our support group will change to the "Prostate Support Group of the Treasure Coast" and we will continue to provide support, education and encouragement to all men as we have done in the past.
All are welcome. Our goal is to reach and provide support to all men and their caregivers who are concerned about their prostate health who are looking for information, or those diagnosed with prostate cancer needing support. Our members are willing to share their experiences, or to help those seeking information on treatment options. Each person makes their own decisions based on personal experiences and needs. We are here to support your decisions, answer your questions and provide information. We extend a hand of friendship to those that could benefit from our experiences and welcome you to join us. If you would like to be on our e-mail or mailing list, please submit your contact information, including e-mail address, to David Shore - firstname.lastname@example.org Your name and contact information will be held in the strictest confidence and is never shared.
