Women Against Prostate Cancer Support Group Launches Updated Website

Find resources, women’s stories and more

By: Theresa Morrow, Co-Founder, Women Against Prostate Cancer

Women Against Prostate Cancer (WAPC), a prostate cancer education and advocacy organization geared toward women and families affected by prostate cancer, is excited to announce the launch of its updated website: www.womenagainstprostatecancer.org. The site also provides a list of chapters and prostate cancer support groups across the country.

The new site will serve as a resource for women who want to learn more about prostate cancer and/or are looking for support following the diagnosis of a loved one. The site includes basic information about prostate cancer, resources for caregivers and information on clinical trials. Visit the site to read the stories of hope, sorrow and triumph from women who have experienced prostate cancer first hand.

The updated site builds upon WAPC’s mission to unite the voices and provide support for the millions of women, and their families affected by prostate cancer. WAPC advocates prostate cancer education, public awareness, screenings, legislation and treatment options.

Prostate cancer is not just a man’s disease, it can have a devastating impact on wives, partners and entire families. WAPC is empowering loved ones to get informed, get involved and help bring an end to this disease. With an estimated 2 million American men currently living with prostate cancer, and another 192,000 who will be diagnosed this year, there are potentially millions of women looking for answers to questions related to the disease and its impact on the family.

Please take just a few minutes to drop by and check out the updated site and new content at: www.womenagainstprostatecancer.org. And be sure to pass this on to friends, family and colleagues who may be interested.

    Having worked with more than 2 thousand men in the last 16 years and thier loved ones that have just begun the prostate cancer journey, I find that no matter how strong they act, they need support in one way or another. This is where loved ones, support groups and correct educational materials are so very key!
    It is my experience that we must be patient but firm in asking to be allowed in if indeed there is a “tough” guy who does not want to worry you and wants to do this alone…Believe it or not there are, but remind him, it is a “we” thing not a “you” thing!
    Be patient, be strong and do by all means be “curious”. Ask and you will have an answer!

    I don’t know if my comment came through or not, but I wanted to congratulated Joan on her wonderful article in Woman’s magazine. Thank you and all the women involved in helping us get through this ordeal.
