2016 CONFERENCE SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS

 
 

Many repeat attendees have told us over the years that half the excitement of coming back to the conference is making friends with other attendees who are also in the fight against prostate cancer. To know that your situation is not insular, that others are also experiencing similar ordeals, brings a welcome relief. The camaraderie extends far beyond the all-too-brief weekend.

Many such friendships are made during support group sessions at our conference, which are tailored to specific needs, such as newly diagnosed men, post-treatment relapse, gay men, women only, and many more. Our partners Malecare and UsTOO are hosting several of the support groups.

ART THERAPY WITH MIA MOYAD

Join Mia Moyad and the PCRI Friday at 2:45-4:00 PM, as we host our first Art Therapy Workshop for caregivers.
