Anacortes – Island Hospital Prostate Cancer Support Group
The Anacortes – Island Hospital Prostate Cancer Support Group became affiliated with UsTOO International, which promotes Prostate Cancer Education, Support and Advocacy.
Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month
Meetings begin 11:00 AM
The meeting is devoted to interactive discussion among attendees to share information and ask questions. Additionally, healthcare professionals are often invited to speak to the group about their particular area of expertise. Meetings provide a non threatening environment for newly diagnosed as well as those with recurring disease to openly discuss their concerns. Family members, friends and medical professionals are welcome. Wives and significant others are especially encouraged to attend. There are dozens of men and their caregivers in the greater Anacortes area who are ready to hear your story, share their experiences, and lend a helping hand.
High-Quality, Compassionate Care
The Merle Cancer Care Center at Island Hospital serves cancer and infusion patients from Anacortes, north Whidbey Island, Bayview, La Conner, Shelter Bay and the San Juan Islands. Our team of nurses and physicians work together to provide compassionate service that offers the best treatment and support for our patients.
The Merle Cancer Care Center staff does everything possible to provide for our patients’ physical, mental, spiritual and emotional needs. Patients who are in the clinic during lunch are provided a meal. Patients may also feel free to bring in food if they will be in the clinic for an extended period of time or they may ask the nurse about clinic refreshments or cafeteria hours. Volunteers and staff are on hand to offer extras such as refreshments, warm blankets and friendly smiles.
