Prostate Cancer Support

Prostate Cancer Support

While undergoing treatment, every prostate cancer patient is paired with a specialized patient navigator for guidance every step of the way. For additional assistance, we offer access to a variety of support groups, and programs. Based on our extensive support systems, we are the proud recipients of a grant from To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation.

Prostate Cancer Support Group

The Prostate Cancer Information and Self-Support Group, coordinated by Prostate Cancer Survivor Stan Rosenfeld, meets to exchange views and concerns, and to give positive support to each other. The goal is to provide a safe place for participants to understand the impact prostate cancer may have on their lifestyle. The group is member led and all are free to discuss whatever is on their minds as they progress through treatment.

Support Services for Spouses and Families of Prostate Cancer Patients

Spouses and adult family members are invited to attend the following patient activities:

  • Medical appointments
  • Afternoon conference, where treatment options are discussed with the interdisciplinary medical team and treatment plan decisions are made—we particularly encourage participation in this conference
  • Individual patient education sessions
  • Group patient education (e.g., nutrition classes and cooking demonstrations)
  • Prostate Cancer Support Group

Family Involvement in Patient Support

Spouses and other family members can play an important role in helping the prostate cancer patient cope with the disease and make treatment decisions. By educating themselves about our prostate cancer program, meeting the patient's care team, and learning more about the disease itself, loved ones can ease their own concerns and better focus on helping the patient recover.
