National Volunteer Week 2019

We’re celebrating each of our 2,500 dedicated volunteers from coast-to-coast during National Volunteer Week from April 7 – 13

With the support of our 2,500 volunteers from coast-to-coast, we’re working hard to change the future of prostate cancer in Canada. This wouldn’t be possible without volunteers. The generosity of our volunteers is truly making a difference whether it’s giving time to support events to increase awareness and raise funds, in our offices, using specific skills to provide leadership, helping select the best research projects, or speaking with governments.

Learn more about some of our incredible volunteers who are changing the future for Canadian families.

“Volunteering for Prostate Cancer Canada means hope.”

Watch as volunteers express what giving their time to Prostate Cancer Canada means to them.

“It’s personal. It’s important. And I hope to make a bit of a difference.”

Maryann Istiloglu volunteers on Prostate Cancer Canada’s research panel as a community representative. This gives her a unique perspective on how the best research projects are selected. The cause is personal for Maryann: Her father died from prostate cancer in 2015 and a close friend was recently diagnosed. Learn more about her experience volunteering.


“I see the direct impact it has with the families.”

Steve Hutton volunteers as leader of a support group for men and their families facing prostate cancer. His role helps others feel supported at every stage of the journey, from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. Learn more about why volunteering for Prostate Cancer Canada and connecting with others is meaningful to Steve.


“Volunteering for Prostate Cancer Canada to me means community.”

Arden Bagni volunteers with her family to raise funds and awareness through Prostate Cancer Canada’s Do it for Dads Walk/Run. Her dad is a prostate cancer survivor and named their team “The Tumournators.” Since 2015, her family has taken part in the Walk/Run each year in different locations across the country. Learn more about why she volunteers.

By becoming a volunteer, you will help Canadian men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their families. Apply now and make a real difference!
