Caring Connections, a division of the Bangor Y, is launching a new support group for men dealing with cancer.

We hear a lot about women’s cancer issues, especially breast cancer. And Caring Connections has worked for years to educate women about the disease, providing information about free and affordable testing for uninsured and under-insured women. Their dedication to the patients stretches beyond information, however, with volunteers often accompanying women to their tests and holding their hands when they get the results.

Now, Caring Connections has launched a new program for men dealing with cancer. The Men’s Cancer Network will offer monthly meetings, open to men dealing with prostate, testicular, or penile cancers, at all stages of diagnosis. Their partners are also encouraged to attend, to offer support and to learn more about the disease and treatments. Cancer Survivor Jon Henry talked to me about the group, saying there will be guest speakers on pertinent topics and open discussions about experiences and individual challenges.

The first meeting is being held on April 4th at the Bangor Y’s Isaac Farrar Mansion, beginning at 6 p.m. For more information, call the Bangor Y at 941-2808 and ask for Caring Connections or log onto the organization’s website.
