February 18, 2021 – Sharing Circle. Although the ‘Sharing Circle’ is meant for both men and their partner, we realize that discussing treatment and issues such as erectile dysfunction or incontinence can be uncomfortable; as such, we sometimes have separate discussion areas for men and women during circle conversations. This is meant to benefit partners who can get real-life insight and suggestions from others who have been through the prostate cancer journey with their partners.
a ZOOM Sharing meeting allows you the opportunity during which you can renew contact with other members, get information based on other member’s experiences and provide updates on your personal medical situation. All participants are reminded to treat any information provided as confidential, and no details will be recorded.
Register in advance for this meeting at 7:00 PM Eastern Time using the following link: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJYkcOGvrTsiE9BYryAtf6Q0qq-zir_okDmY
