It was one year ago on January 14, 2019 that I, John Jorgensen started the Prostate Cancer Support Group. Not knowing if anyone would attend, I was pleasantly surprised that there were six of us all sharing our walk with prostate cancer. Men with questions and others with their story of this monster that lives within us.

Since then we have met regularly on the second Monday of each month at Toby’s in Meckling with an attendance ranging from four to eight men. Now on our first anniversary, we have decided to change venue. Beginning on Jan. 13, we will meet at Pizza Ranch, 1501 Broadway in Yankton, at 6 p.m., the second Monday of each month.

If you have prostate cancer or prostate health concerns and want to visit with other men with this same affliction, come join us for a meal and conversation. As one of our members said recently as we were going home for the night, “It’s so nice to know I am not alone.”

This fittingly reflects our Motto, “Walk the path with others, YOU are not alone!” For more information contact John Jorgensen: e-mail, call 605-624-6472, call or text 605-670-2037. Or you may contact Bill McMenamy e-mail , call 605-660-5878 or 605-665-8719.
