My Journey with Prostate Cancer: The Introduction
2013-08-19 10:21:49 AM
I am a very happily retired guy who’s been enjoying the good life since October 26, 2010, when my wife and I retired from 37 years at The StarPhoenix. During my working career I started in the Composing Room producing advertisements for the newspaper in hot metal type – I was actually the last person at the SP using hot metal when we converted to what we called cold type in the mid-seventies.

Research Update: Rising Star Award

We hear a lot about research in the field of cancer these days. There have been so many exciting developments that have opened the door to potential new treatments and knowledge.
Prostate Cancer and Parliament

When we think about prostate cancer, we might think of a conversation  we had with our doctor. Or maybe a conversation with our family or friends. What about a conversation with your local MP?
Prostate Cancer Awareness week- why are we doing this?
2012-09-17 4:41:00 PM
We pass by men on the street every day. They’re our co-workers, neighbours and friends. Closer to home, we talk to our fathers, brothers and husbands. Men occupy important places in our lives- and yet, we don’t stop to consider that during their lifetime 1 in 7 of them will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Announcing ASAP!
2012-08-28 1:59:09 PM
Given the prevalence of prostate cancer in Canadian men, the message couldn’t be clearer: we need to expand survivorship services.  That’s why we’re so excited about launching  ‘A Survivorship Action Partnership’ (ASAP).
UPDATE - Survivorship Programs
2012-06-04 4:26:30 PM
The five year relative survival rate for prostate cancer is close to 100 per cent. In other words – this is a highly curable disease.  For survivors, beating the disease is often only the first step, as recovery can result in a host of other challenges.  PCC’s goal is to support men and their families throughout their prostate cancer journey – diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Clare's Story

We were very happy, Kim myself and our three children, Victoria 19, Austin 19 and Jennifer 16. We were in love; we had great jobs and a wonderful family. We thought we were invincible. We met in 2006 and married in 2008. 
It’s Our Time To Celebrate

Today, we celebrate our first year anniversary in Atlantic Canada! Our Atlantic office was established to raise awareness and support research and programs for the fight against prostate cancer- and it’s been a busy year! Below is a snapshot of what PCC Atlantic has been up to.
Happy First Anniversary! - A Note From Moncton
2012-03-20 11:02:08 AM
When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in June 2009, it was a surprise to me to learn that there were only two support groups in all of New Brunswick, Fredericton and Miramichi.  There had been active groups in Moncton and Saint John, but not for quite a number of years.
