You've got allies to help you on your journey

Talk to a West Michigan man who has experienced Prostate Cancer by calling 1-844-477-2559.

Hundreds of men living in the greater Grand Rapids and lakeshore area are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. For these men and their families, this can be a time of confusion and anxiety.

Prostate Support Allies (PSA) are volunteer mentors who personally found great comfort in talking to others as they faced Prostate Cancer (PC). From this positive personal experience, the PSA program at Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids was founded. It is our way of paying it forward. We are from different backgrounds and hold various occupations, yet we all share the common life experience of PC. The Prostate Support Allies do not give medical advice or opinions. West Michigan offers a world class medical field for that. Our role is to provide those men in West Michigan, who are diagnosed with PC, the opportunity to talk in confidence to a PSA mentor who has experienced PC treatment.

The PSA volunteer mentors are trained and certified through Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. PSA is partnering with both Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids and The Survivors Association to share information and resources. PSA is a non-profit, volunteer organization of individuals which will increase in numbers with the need and effectiveness of the program.
