Experience matters

Get paired with a Caregiver Navigator to guide you along the prostate cancer journey.

What it is.

TrueNTH (“True North”) Peer Navigation is a free navigation program that puts you in touch with someone who has experienced prostate cancer and is trained to support you along your journey.

  1. Talk to someone about their real experiences - more than just online browsing and statistics.
  2. Feel comfortable discussing what you are going through with someone who knows what it’s like.
  3. Take the time you need to ask detailed questions and discuss your options.
  4. Find the support you need to overcome barriers to your loved one’s care and recovery.
