Prosper - A support group can help you to know the right questions to ask - it's your life!
Prosper was formed in 1998 thanks to the late Keith Williams whose efforts to find a local support group for men impacted by prostate cancer in Darwin were fruitless.
With the support from both the Department of Veteran Affairs and the Vietnam Veterans’ Counselling Services, during the early days, Prosper has made it to where it is today.
The Prosper group was named so, thanks to the reason the group was created: Pros(tate Cancer) and because we are all per(sons) impacted by this disease and together we are prospering.
We meet on the second Monday monthly (excluding January and any Monday falling on a public holiday) at 7:30pm in the Harbour Room, Christ Church Cathedral, Smith Street, Darwin.
We are very keen to see other men, family members and carers with prostate problems, so join us and stop doing it 'solo'.
