Support Services

We know that living with prostate cancer affects not just you but also your spouse and your entire family. Our prostate cancer support group meets monthly and is very active in the community through our prostate cancer advocacy group. We are here to give you the information and emotional support you need. We can also help you create a support plan that meets your needs. We provide counseling and emotional support for prostate cancer patients and their families.

Our prostate cancer support group meets on the first Tuesday of each month from 5:30 - 7 p.m. at:

OHSU Center for Health & Healing
3303 S.W. Bond Avenue
3rd Floor Conference Center, Room 1A & 1B
Portland, OR 97239


Peter Bennett, M.S.W., Oncology Social Worker
Rachel Slottke, Clinical Research Project Coordinator, Prostate Cancer Research
Justina Lynch, Nurse Coordinator, Multidisciplinary Prostate Cancer Clinic

The group meetings begin with brief introductions and announcements. When a speaker comes to the group, they will speak for approximately 45 minutes, saving time for questions. The last 30 minutes are reserved for informal check-in and discussion by attendees. Following the group meeting, attendees are welcome to use the comfortable furniture and visit informally in the first floor lobby of the OHSU Center for Health & Healing.
