What We Do

Given the prevalence of prostate cancer in Canadian men and increasing survival rates, the message couldn’t be clearer: survivorship services are essential. The PCC Support Services Department is available to provide information, resources and support to you and your circle of care and support.
  • “Prostate cancer survivorship” focuses on the physical, psychosocial, social/family, mental, functional, spiritual, emotional and practical concerns of daily living.
  • We believe in addressing the emotional and psychological needs of your partner, family, friends and caregivers, as they play a vital role in supporting you throughout the cancer experience.
  • For those without the support of loved ones, it is even more essential to seek out supportive care networks in the community





PCC-funded researcher Dr. Andrew Matthew described aspects of prostate cancer survivorship below: 



Receiving a diagnosis of prostate cancer is not easy for many to manage. We hope that offering these health promotion and support resources will ease the burden. The recovery process can bring about new challenges and we are committed to supporting you from diagnosis to treatment and recovery.
