A community of optimists.
PEPSS (Prostate Edmonton Peer Support Society) is a community dedicated to establishing a caring and judgement free connection group for those seeking to meet individuals dealing with a prostate cancer diagnoses within their family or friend network. We understand that dealing with a case of prostate cancer can be extremely stressful and emotionally draining, which is why we believe joining a community of individuals facing similar circumstances can bring gravity and a breathe of fresh air to your life.
Through being vulnerable about your medical situation and sharing your fears and concerns, it creates room for those to reach out and help you. We assure you that you will be surprised at the sincerity, optimism and respect of those within our network.
If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, a prostate cancer survivor or a relative of one, or if you deeply care about someone with prostate cancer, we invite you to join our group, the Prostate Edmonton Peer Support Society.

You may not want to ask questions at a group meeting. You may want to speak with someone having the same issues. You may want to talk with someone who has gone through the same treatment you are considering. Or after treatment, you may be dealing with complications.
