Prostate Cancer Support Group ― ACT Region

Welcome to the ACT and Region Prostate Cancer Support Group

We are a friendly, voluntary association of men who have been diagnosed as having prostate cancer, their partners and others with an interest in prostate health. Men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer have either undertaken treatment or are evaluating the various treatment options. We are not funded by any governmental or private body. Our activities are undertaken by members who contribute their time voluntarily.  Expenditure made by the group is sourced through donations and fund-raising activities. There is no membership fee.
