Though Malecare seems more focused on prostate and testicular cancer, their social worker was able to help me connect with other men diagnosed with lung cancer. Malecare also showed me how to use the internet to get quality kinds of information.

Malecare helped connect me with other guys with my cancer

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand into lung cancer support

Malecarupport is a support organization that guides one from that deafening silence at the moment of diagnosis through the meandering matrix of options and confusion to a point of reasoned and informed decision making. This alone is priceless.

Malecare has been a most positive experience for me after being diagnosed ten years ago with prostate cancer. My choice of treatment is based on what I learned and discovered through this support group.

In the 18 months since my prostate cancer was diagnosed, Malecare has been hugely helpful to me. Its weekly discussions are a vast source of specific information and ideas, as well as a font of psychological guidance and support. Darryl does a splendid job of steering the ship between these two goals. And thanks to his wisdom and diplomacy, the experience has made me feel much less alone. A prostate cancer diagnosis is terrifying and confusing. But the Malecare meetings have made it much easier to take. I recommend Malecare, and Darryl, whole-heartedly.

I am indebted to Daryl and the folks at Malecare because, over a year ago when I received my diagnosis of prostate cancer, they were there for me. I was upset and confused and swimming in questions. Malecare provided a wealth of useful information in the form of websites and writings on various topics concerned with prostate cancer. Moreover, I was able to attend a couple sessions of the support group that meets in Manhattan and hear the stories of others who were where I was. The counsel I received at the support group gave me the information I needed to make the right decision for me. I underwent a radical prostatectomy at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and, although my cancer was more serious than suspected, I came through the operation fine and have had no recurrance. My PSA continues to be zero. Malecare helped A LOT. I continue to be on their mailing list and know they are there to help in the future should I need it. Thanks Malecare.

I have prostate cancer wnad Malecare is one of the better sites to keep informed about treatments.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Hearing how other men deal with prostate cancer and learn what best practices are. It also gives updates on emerging treatments before they are generally know to the public.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get it more exposure.
