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.
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.
I was all alone with this diagnosis of prostate cancer and found Malecare which held me and gave me courage and the latest knowledge. I could not survived without this support group and I still come to meetings to encourage others to attend.
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.
After I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, I found Malecare via Google. Their weekly support group was of great value not only as an information exchange, but of great psychological help in getting through the whole diagnosis/decision/treatment/recovery process.
I have found male care to be extremely helpful in alerting me to the latest treatments for prostate cancer.
As a male who is dealing with this disease I find the website very supportive.Keep up the wonderful work
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 a friend who was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and who attended Malecare support group. The Malecare support group seemed to help him ALOT. HE seemed so much more relaxed and confident about his treatment choices after attending the group.
