PCCN Toronto Peer Support MeetingsA typical Tuesday night Man to Man peer support meeting at Valleyview Residence.

  • Have you recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer?
  • Are you in the process of exploring your treatment options?
  • Have you had treatment and now are dealing with side effects?
  • Are you a prostate cancer survivor willing to share your experience?

Attend one of our peer support meetings!  Among the attendees will usually be someone who has had the treatment(s) you are considering or dealt with the side effects you are experiencing.

PCCN-Toronto Man to Man Peer Support Meetings – 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
These meetings are held on the FIRST and THIRD Tuesday evenings of each month except on statutory holidays,  at Valleyview Residence, 541 Finch Ave West, (Immediately east of North York General Hospital’s Branson site),Toronto, Ontario, M2R 3Y3, Phone 416-398-0555. See the map below.

Man to Man Toronto Peer Support MeetingsOur meetings provide an opportunity for you to talk in complete confidence with prostate cancer survivors. These meetings draw 30 to 40 men. There is usually someone there who has had the treatment you are considering. This gives you an opportunity to talk directly to the men who’ve been through the various treatments. Our meetings provide an opportunity for men to come together to talk with others about managing one’s life with prostate cancer. Parking is FREE and there is a refreshment break, during which time you will have the opportunity to talk “one on one” with anyone you choose.  Note: we cannot give medical advice, but can share our knowledge of treatments and experiences.

Side by Side Peer Support Meetings – 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Since a diagnosis of prostate cancer can affect the entire family, we also have Side by Side Peer Support Meetings. These meetings are held on the FIRST Tuesday evening of each month except on statutory holidays, at Valleyview Residence in the Board Room. They provide an opportunity for conversation from a spouse/partner’s perspective. See the map below.

There are also 2 subgroup meetings that alternate on third Tuesday:  Warriors, for men with more advanced prostate cancer, and the Emotional Support Group, for men needing more emotional, as opposed to more medical type, support.
