News and Upcoming Presentations from PCSC

A cancer diagnosis is always life-altering and even more so during a global pandemic.

Imagine having your cancer appointments taking place over Zoom or over phone calls and not having the privilege of meeting your doctor face-to-face until the day of your surgery.

Imagine not being allowed to have your partner there for you as you receive your diagnosis or your treatments. Or your partner not being there by your side as you receive your discharge information at the hospital.

We’ve heard stories from patients and partners across Canada struggling for the past nearly two years attempting to navigate an already uncertain journey, through increasingly uncertain times. 

Throughout this time, we’ve worked tirelessly to expand our support services to be available to men no matter where they live or how accessible their nearest cancer centres or support groups may be.

We’ve made it our goal to be there for prostate cancer patients and their loved ones whenever and wherever they need us, because we know that cancer doesn’t stop for pandemics, or holidays, or geography. 

If you need one-on-one support, educational materials, or help finding a support group this holiday season, we’ll still be here for you – just an email away. 

As we continue to support patients and their families this holiday season, we could really use your support too.
