Fully funded by the Movember Foundation, it is a designed to empower men living with prostate cancer to better manage their health and the life changes resulting from prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment.

The program includes a number of component parts including treatment decision making information, lifestyle advice, peer to peer support with other prostate cancer survivors, sexual health resources, symptom management tools and easier access to healthcare professionals.
