Roberta Casabon's Biography:

In 2002 Glenn and Roberta began their eight-year journey with Prostate Cancer. Together they aggressively countered each new development with a resolve that never wavered. With an indomitable spirit, a positive attitude and a sense of humour they embraced life and all its new challenges. It is with this same commitment that Roberta carries on the battle they began together. 

In memory of her late husband, Roberta continues to speak openly about Prostate Cancer. As a widowed survivor she is a strong advocate for a pro-active stance when dealing with prostate health.  She now volunteers for Prostate Cancer Canada adding her support and voice to public awareness campaigns. In her role as an advocate for the caregiver/partner she gives a voice to the supportive caregiver community and endeavours to expand connections between other widowed survivors.
