A group of women supporting each other and their spouses through their shared cancer journey
Women's peer support group
Prostate Cancer Support Edmonton Women is a peer support group for spouses/partners of men with prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is sometimes described as a “couples cancer”, as it can have a significant effect on many different facets of your relationship. This is a small intimate group that provides a safe and confidential setting to talk about the challenges you face as the partner of a man with prostate cancer. It’s a forum to share ideas and experiences, and to provide compassion and support for each other. Whether your partner has just been diagnosed, is going through treatment, or is dealing with the aftermath of treatment, you are welcome to join us. The format is drop-in, no registration necessary.
Some evenings we will have set topics to discuss, other times it will just be open discussion. We will occasionally invite a guest speaker to join us to talk about a particular topic.
A travel mug with a lid if you bring a coffee, water or other beverage with you
A sweater so you can adjust for the temperature of the room
Indoor shoes to wear if you wish (for the winter months)
Please contact Sue at email@example.com if you have questions or would like to talk to someone before you attend a meeting. Hope you can join us!
Prostate Edmonton Peer Support Society (PEPSS) 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.
Talk to a member that has received prostate cancer treatment
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.
