Each month we have a meeting where those affected by Prostate Cancer can get together to share experiences, ask questions and receive advice.
We often have an expert speaker who will give a talk on a relevant subject. (See our "Dates for your diary" page for details of the speakers)
This is followed by an opportunity for socialising and to ask questions relating to prostate cancer. This might be in a group discussion or informally, one-to-one .
A Clinical Nurse Specialist often attends our meetings so that medical questions can be answered by a professional.
Our monthly meetings are held in the Cheltenham Maggie's Centre. The Centre is close to the Oncology Unit of Cheltenham Hospital, near to the Fire Station.
Can't make our Monday meetings - why not come to PCP - the Prostate Cancer Partners' meetings instead?
PCP is for anyone affected by prostate cancer. It is usually held at the Table Table restaurant at the Oakwood pub, Twigworth, where two tables are booked in the restaurant - one for men and one for women, with privacy for both groups. As this is a drop-in meeting, there is no need to book in advance. This is a Brewer's Fayre restaurant with a good selection of reasonably priced food and drinks available. Meetings start at 7pm and finish by 9pm. Occasionally, a meeting is held at a different venue - particularly at New Year - so it is advisable to confirm with Penny where the meeting will be. Penny can be contacted on 01684 772559
You'll have a chance to ask questions, exchange ideas and then chat informally over a cuppa. We'll also be gearing up for our big PSA testing event at Tewkesbury School later in May.

Another great event we'll be attending is this one at Tewkesbury School on Sunday 19th August. Again, if you can spare some time, please contact John.
