Sep 25th Special Prsentation

Gen'l Meeting Flyer

We survivors have earned the right to believe that many of the "early-on answers" prostate cancer "victims" and their family members who love them are looking for, will not be found at a doctor's office. A fully-informed decision can be arrived at only by including men and women who "have been there".

Our meetings are designed to allow, encourage, and offer a forum for open, honest, and frank comments of prostate cancer issues. We believe that only through this type of atmosphere is one likely to hear, and be able to frankly and confidentially discuss subject content unlikely to be addressed by physicians or other medical professionals.

 

For the newly-diagnosed man and his spouse this type of information is critical to get him/them on track toward a treatment choice in which he/they can have total confidence and peace of mind.  We further believe that this type of information is oftentimes the only "place" where a survivor will hear a workable solution to an on-going issue.

 

Our membership covers different ethnic, age, and income level groups. Some of our regular attendees have over 14 years of dealing with their personal prostate cancer "journey" and each man has a different experience to draw from that can prove beneficial to another.

 

Typically there are drinks and snacks at our meetings; there is no charge and there are no annual membership dues.

Topics Discussed:
  • Treatment choices
    • Radiation (several different forms)
    • Hormones
    • Ablation (heat or freezing)
    • MRI laser guided focal ablation
    •  Active surveilance
    • Surgery (usually robotic)
  • Keagle ecercise
  • Incontinence

  • PSA: The "new" rules, should you or shouldn't you have routine testing?
  • DRE: Of what importance is it?
  • Biopsies: when, why, how to understand and use results
  • Gleason Score
  • Clinical Trials

 

It would be our pleasure and joy to have you attend!
