Penile Cancer Support Meeting 4th October

Published: 11th August 2016

Orchid Penile Cancer Booklet

Orchid is committed to developing a range of services for men affected by penile cancer.

One of the services we have been asked to consider developing is an online community for men who have been recently diagnosed with penile cancer, those undergoing treatment and those who have been through an experience of penile cancer.

We are currently in the initial stages of researching an online platform/forum to help provide peer support and to supplement existing forums.

We would very much like to discuss the best way in which we can provide this for men and are holding a meeting for anyone interested on the 4/10/16 in North London. I have attached some initial details.

An initial agenda can be found below.
