PCCN support groups mark milestones

Several PCCN support groups across the country have marked milestones this year including years of service. This month we highlight PCCN Toronto who marked 20 years of service on November 26th at the Toronto Botanical Garden. Many attended who have supported PCCN Toronto’s work over the years. Dr. Padraig Warde, radiation oncologist at Princess Margaret Hospital graciously accepted a special recognition plaque in honour of Dr. John Trachtenberg from the Prostate Centre, University Health Network who played a major role in starting the group.
