Welcome to the website of the Essendon Prostate Cancer Support Group.

In April 2011 a group of concerned locals had a meeting to discuss prostate health. After a very successful meeting it was agreed to set up a local prostate cancer support group.

Our first official meeting was on the 14th June 2011.


The Essendon Prostate Cancer Support Group “EPCSG” is a community volunteer group. We welcome any man, his partner or family member to participate with the hope that their prostate cancer journey is made easier because we provide information, education from health professionals and resources along with like-minded people who share their experiences.


  • Any personal information is confidential. What is said in the meeting stays in the meeting.
  • We do not provide medical advice, we do, however, provide support to our members and families for their prostate journey.
  • Everyone has an equal right to talk or to be silent
  • We participate in community events to bring about awareness of our Prostate Cancer Support Group and its benefits of attending.
  • We participate in some fundraising activities to cover the costs of our group and its promotion to the Community.

We are proudly affiliated with the The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and the Cancer Council of Victoria.
