Support Groups

Penile Cancer Awareness and Support (closed Facebook Group)

This group is the largest online support group in the world for penile cancer. Originally set up by Mr Nigel Smith in 2011 following his own diagnosis of a particularly rare type of penile cancer, it is now maintained by his daughter Tammy and advocate and survivor Mr Wayne Earle. The group has a global reach with over 450 current group members. Like all support groups there are people who are in different situations, some good and some not so good, but it remains the most valuable source of peer support we know of. Family and partners are also welcome to post on behalf of those affected.
