The support groups sponsored by the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Foundation, known as the Peer Network, meet once a month in Little Rock, Ft. Smith, Fayetteville and Jonesboro. The mission of the Peer Network is to empower and reassure survivors. For meeting times and dates, click here.
Peer Network support group meetings are open to all and provide a private and confidential setting for survivors to talk openly about prostate cancer-related issues. In our support group meetings, survivors join forces to handle all aspects of prostate cancer from diagnosis through treatment and recovery. Participants communicate concerns, ask questions, and share knowledge. By participating in the Peer Network, you will gain insight and build friendships to help you through the prostate cancer journey.
A “Survivor” is anyone battling prostate cancer, the man who is diagnosed and his partner, friend or caregiver. Survivorship begins at diagnosis and continues through treatment and beyond.
As a part of our Patient Navigation, we offer one-on-one access to a network of individual Survivor-Mentors. Survivor-Mentors are men and women who have navigated through a prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment and who are trained to encourage others and help them find resources. If you would like to speak with a Survivor-Mentor, please call 1 (800) 338-1383.
