The support group was formed in 2002 and is affiliated with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and the Cancer Council Victoria. The main focus of our Group is to provide emotinal support and information to the general public.


Members receive a newsletter via post or email and copies of other community and support group's newsletters and leaflets. A library of books and DVDs on prostate cancer and associated conditions is available to be borrowed at meetings.

We hold information days locally.

Our meetings are always very well supported by our members who are available to answer questions in confidence and offer support We have a panel of members who give freely of their own experiences, often personally by phone to newly diagnosed visitors to alert them to the many options available.

Our meetings are open to all members of the public and we encourage wives or partners to attend.
