Cruisin' for a Cure

Sunday September 9, 2018 - CAA Centre, Brampton



Cruisin' For A Cure Canada is a car show whose goal is to raise awareness about prostate cancer, which is as serious for men as breast cancer is for women. Yet OHIP STILL forces most men in Ontario to pay for their PSA blood tests except (a) at the discretion of their family doctor or (b) once they have already been diagnosed with prostate cancer!

Cruisin' For A Cure Canada will continue to offer FREE, confidential PSA Tests to men aged 40 and over.
This simple test is not perfect, but it is a vital first step in the process of detecting Prostate Cancer.
