Dr. David Samadi And The Importance of Support Group For Prostate Cancer Patients

     According to Dr. David Samadi, when a person faces a stressful life or a major illness, he or she does not want to experience it alone. This is the period when you need a support group. For that reason, Dr. David Samadi created a prostate cancer support group from where men can meet for emotional support, share ideas, and discuss their experiences regarding the disease. Men who are infected with the disease should know that they are not alone because other men also suffer from the same challenge. Support groups are safe places where people can comfortably open up about their current situations. When they are in support groups, they know that everything about their issues will be confidential.

Dr. David Samadi launched the support group with the mission of advocating for the awareness that it is necessary for men to get annual screening for prostate cancer. This will catch and curb the disease at its early stage. The support group will also help men who are diagnosed with the disease understand the variety of available treatment options. For those who have to survive the illness, this will be a platform for encouraging and inspiring those who are undergoing the treatment process. Furthermore, the support group will emphasize on the essentiality of continued education, which in turn help them with the understanding of the several effects of prostate cancer.

Dr. David Samadi emphasizes that his goal is to come up with a support group, which entails family members, a community of patients, and friends who are dedicated to deal with the prostate cancer. The meetings of the group will be open to any person that shares the same need and attitude to reach out to the people who are affected. By meeting on a regular basis, members, friends, and family members can offer strength to patients who are undergoing diagnosis, treatment, or recovery.
