Prostate Cancer Canada Network

The Prostate Cancer Canada Network is comprised of over 70 prostate cancer support groups from coast to coast. These groups provide services at the grass roots level, through monthly peer meetings, special educational events, outreach programs and presentations to service clubs, community health fairs and more.
 
While some groups are very small and some very large, the common thread that ties them all together is an overwhelming desire to help educate men about the need for early detection and to ease the journey for those diagnosed.
 
Our group members and leaders do not give medical information but freely share their own stories. They participate in discussions facilitated by medical experts, and share knowledge about treatment options and advances. It is through this bonding and knowledge building that men are empowered to feel that ‘they are not alone’, that we are able to make a difference and this is the key to our success.
 
Most PCCN support groups meet monthly, with some groups having multiple meetings. Partners and family members are welcome at general meetings but some groups choose to hold separate meetings for their partners to encourage opportunities for sharing personal feelings, reactions and experiences, to deal with burnout and other related issues as they are cope with this disease.
