Volunteer Stories

"I volunteer at Prostate Cancer Canada because I love making a difference to the organization. It’s a very important cause that I am grateful to be a part of. My favourite thing about volunteering is being on reception which allows for me to meet new people. Also the staff at Prostate Cancer Canada are very dedicated to making a huge difference in men’s lives that are affected by prostate cancer." Effie

“I wanted to get some experience helping in an environment that champions cancer research before starting my Master’s program. The staff focused on finding me meaningful opportunities that helped prepare me for graduate work. My work is valued and I’m appreciated. I know so much more about prostate cancer which I can now share. ” Pam

“I have prostate cancer. I’m on a mission to create awareness so that other men don’t have to go through what I’m experiencing. At Prostate Cancer Canada I have had opportunities to share my story and impact other men directly. I’m doing something about this disease and it’s very gratifying.” Thad

“Our dad died from prostate cancer.  We wanted to give back and help fight this disease. So we raise money for research and volunteer for big events every year. We are doing it for our dad and all the other dads who might get prostate cancer in their lifetime.”  John and Rob
