Support Groups

Prostate Cancer support groups are open to patients, survivors, relatives, friends, healthcare professionals and others who care. No reservations are necessary and there are no fees. Most groups offer free parking and free refreshments. Meetings are usually monthly and often have professional speakers with audience Q&A and discussion. Learn to cope through knowledge and hope through support.

Please note that Boston support groups will meet on the second Monday of the month if the first Monday of the month is a holiday. Please contact the support group leader for any schedule-related questions. For additional information, contact MPCC at
