UK Support Groups

Hi Guys, I am new to this forum, which looks pretty useful to those wanting to find info on Prostate Cancer.

I myself belong to a support group which I found very useful in getting me through Prostate Cancer and I can recommend it as an avenue for getting 'real' testimonies from people with Prostate Cancer.

The support group meets every month at Guys Hospital, London Bridge, every 2nd Tuesday of the month between 2 - 4pm.

For anyone interested the support group has a website, address below.
