Prostate Cancer Support Call May 13

Posted May 03 2010 12:00am

On Thursday, May 13, at 9:00 p.m, I'm hosting a free support call "Conquer Prostate Cancer: How Family, Friends and Support Groups Can Help You Get Through Treatment and Side Effects."

In this 45-minute interactive presentation you will learn:
•    How to talk to your family and friends about your illness immediately after you are diagnosed.

•    What facts spouses and partners need to know about prostate cancer and possible treatment side effects.

•    How to help your spouse or partner prepare emotionally for prostate cancer treatment and possible side effects.

•    How support groups can help you identify which treatment options you might consider, based on the benefits and risks of each treatment.

•    What family and friends can do to help you identify the challenges you and they will have to face.

•    What to say when well-meaning but ineffective acquaintances say, "Let me know if there's anything I can do for you."

•    When to call on family or friends to help "run interference" for you with your doctor or other healthcare personnel.

•    How to get your family or friends to help you find a reputable doctor for a second opinion.

•    What family and friends need to do for you if your health gets worse, such as a recurrence of cancer or the development of advanced prostate cancer.

•    The best way you and your family and friends can celebrate if your doctor says you are cured or have gone into remission.

The teleseminar call will be at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time, but everyone who registers will receive a recording of the call. To register for this free call, go to
