The Man to Man program helps men cope with prostate cancer by offering community-based education and support for patients and their family members.
A core component of the program is the self-help and/or support group. Volunteers organize these free monthly meetings where speakers and participants learn about and discuss information about prostate cancer, treatment, side effects, and how to cope with prostate cancer and its treatment.
Some Man to Man groups may invite wives and partners to attend meetings. In other locations, wives and partners may meet separately in a group setting called Side by Side. Sponsored by the American Cancer Society.
