I didn't mean to start a new thread - only reply to Livinadream's post about
support groups. But once a thread is posted there's not taking it back!
I am a member of the Danbury, CT chapter of USTOO. It is a great organization. The group meets once a month and it has been a real good experience for me. There are several guys fighting PCa with everything they've got. Some guys know they are near the end of that fight. I find it inspiring and very grounding to listen to them talk. I count my blessings every time I leave that group. I would encourage anyone to join a live support group. I find the face to face interaction very healing in many ways. I also refer many guys to this website and its huge library of knowledge.
The only real reason I chose it over American Cancer Society sponsored groups was its proximity. ACS has great support groups for men all over the country. They also have financial aid for cancer patients and all kinds of help as far as transportation, counseling, etc. When I win the lottery, I will send both of these groups a big check -- not to mention Healing Well!
