Go to USToo.org. They have listings of local chapters and meeting / contact information.
 
Also, if you have a local major hospital, check with them to see if they have a support group co-ordinator. At least in my area, the major hospitals have one or more people responsible for support groups in general.

I've attended UsToo meetings in the northwestern suburbs. Go HERE to find a chapter nearby.

Also in the northwest suburbs, my wife goes HERE for support of her cancer case...and they have prostate cancer support programs, too.
