Diagnosed with prostate cancer?
We offer fellowship & guidance through personal experiences. We have made the journey! We can help.
We meet every month in friendly, no-pressure environment of Wellspring Birmingham-Gilgan House and are always ready to welcome visitors. Whether you want to come once or on a regular basis, please know that the group is there for you, ready with experience, encouragement, understanding and support. We understand that some men are reluctant to open up on a first visit and we are quite happy if you choose just to sit and listen. The choice is yours.
