A confidential support group for veteran patients with prostate cancer will have its inaugural meeting from 3-4 p.m. Thursday at the VA Hudson Valley Health Care System. Veterans wishing to attend can go to one of two places for the meeting:
- FDR Montrose Campus, 2094 Albany Post Road, Montrose, Bldg. 14, Room 6
- Castle Point Campus, 41 Old Castle Point Road, Wappingers Falls, Bldg. D2, Room 208
Veterans also can call into the meeting by dialing (800) 767-1750 and, when prompted for the “access code,” entering 35836 followed by the # key.
The group was developed by veterans for veterans who may be newly diagnosed, in treatment or a cancer survivor. The group is facilitated by a prostate cancer survivor. The event is confidential, not documented and there is no co-pay involved.
The group will meet regularly from 3-4 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month. So far, meetings are scheduled for Jan. 14, Feb. 11, March 10 and April 14.
