MEN'S CANCER NETWORK

If you have been diagnosed with prostate, penile, or testicular cancers, we are here to help. Men with any of these cancers face many significant and life-altering challenges. The Men's Cancer Network is a local resource that is here to help ensure you do not need to go through these challenges alone. 

The below resources are available to any qualifying participants:

Monthly Discussion Groups

Open to men and their spouses or partners where sensitive and difficult issues can be talked about in a safe, confidential environment. Guest speakers such as members of the medical community are often invited to speak on their area of expertise.

Health Information Sessions

Monthly educational sessions with speakers from the community on various aspects of wellness.

 

Family Activities

Picnics, bowling, pot lucks... a chance to connect with other families affected by cancer.

 

Monthly Newsletter/Calendar of Events
