About us

 Our support group started in 1994 by a group of men diagnosed with prostate cancer looking for a way to help others. The original meeting was held in the  Windsor’s Office of Dr Ron Sorensen. Founders of Windsor Essex Prostate Cancer Support Group were  Don M. Dawson, Andy Iannicello, Mitch Mason, Benny Delimonte, Bill Sherbank and Dr Sorensen.

 Don M. Dawson was our original chairperson in 1994. The Chairperson between 1995-1998 was Don Sigrist who resigned October 21st 1998, at which time the position was taken over by Mitch Mason who resigned in the fall of 2013. Presently Preston Harris and Germaine Gould are Co-Chairs.

Andy Iannicello was our first treasurer. The treasurer from 1995  to 1997 was Andy Darmicello. From 1997 to date our Treasurer is Jim Lee.

 We are a self- help support group of women and men focused on providing education, comfort and support to men and their families throughout Windsor and Essex County about Prostate Cancer.

Each month meetings are held for new and present members, part of which involve small groups or one on one support secessions for both men and women.

When possible we provide speakers at our meetings.

We promote P.S.A. Testing by holding clinics throughout our area.

We believe you are entitled know all you can about Prostate Cancer. Be informed and make your own educated decisions regarding your treatment and care.

Recommendations or endorsements for products, treatments or physician are not given by our group.

A qualified healthcare professional should always be consulted before making medical decisions.
