Raise awareness about prostate cancer
2010-07-22 10:48:42 AM
Media, online or off, can’t by itself raise awareness about prostate cancer, its risk factors and the need for research funding. Crucial to that effort are the great community events that support our cause. There’s no substitute for real people interacting and supporting one another, the reach and the cool factor of Facebook and Twitter notwithstanding.

Resolutions
2012-01-23 12:10:55 PM
It’s that time of the year where most of us have realized that our New Year’s resolutions just aren’t going to happen. Instead of giving up and hibernating ‘til spring, let’s recommit to one resolution that we can all achieve:

February 6th marks the beginning of the exhibit in Winnipeg. To celebrate, we caught up with award-winning photographer, Fred Chartrand, to ask him about his involvement in TIEd Together.  Fred photographed Olympic gold medalist Alex Baumann as part of the exhibit.
Prostate Cancer and Black History Month
2012-02-21 10:05:14 AM
It’s time for men to take charge of their health. This is even more important for those of African or Caribbean descent as they are at a higher risk of developing prostate cancer, the most common cancer to afflict Canadian men.
It’s Our Time To Celebrate
2012-03-20 11:02:08 AM
Today, we celebrate our first year anniversary in Atlantic Canada! Our Atlantic office was established to raise awareness and support research and programs for the fight against prostate cancer- and it’s been a busy year! Below is a snapshot of what PCC Atlantic has been up to.
Happy First Anniversary! - A Note From Moncton
2012-03-20 11:02:08 AM
When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in June 2009, it was a surprise to me to learn that there were only two support groups in all of New Brunswick, Fredericton and Miramichi.  There had been active groups in Moncton and Saint John, but not for quite a number of years.
Clare's Story
2012-04-03 3:15:01 PM
We were very happy, Kim myself and our three children, Victoria 19, Austin 19 and Jennifer 16. We were in love; we had great jobs and a wonderful family. We thought we were invincible. We met in 2006 and married in 2008. 
UPDATE - Survivorship Programs
2012-06-04 4:26:30 PM
The five year relative survival rate for prostate cancer is close to 100 per cent. In other words – this is a highly curable disease.  For survivors, beating the disease is often only the first step, as recovery can result in a host of other challenges.  PCC’s goal is to support men and their families throughout their prostate cancer journey – diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Announcing ASAP!
2012-08-28 1:59:09 PM
Given the prevalence of prostate cancer in Canadian men, the message couldn’t be clearer: we need to expand survivorship services.  That’s why we’re so excited about launching  ‘A Survivorship Action Partnership’ (ASAP).
Prostate Cancer Awareness week- why are we doing this?
2012-09-17 4:41:00 PM
We pass by men on the street every day. They’re our co-workers, neighbours and friends. Closer to home, we talk to our fathers, brothers and husbands. Men occupy important places in our lives- and yet, we don’t stop to consider that during their lifetime 1 in 7 of them will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Prostate Cancer and Parliament

When we think about prostate cancer, we might think of a conversation  we had with our doctor. Or maybe a conversation with our family or friends. What about a conversation with your local MP?
The month of the doctor
2013-09-23 5:06:44 PM
After my biopsy, my wife and I went to Maui for ten days with some friends. We had a perfect holiday, and I forgot about all my troubles and just enjoyed the sun, surf and great friends.
D-Day
2013-10-01 5:10:43 PM
As April 29 approached, I noticed my moods were all over the map. It was almost like I was bipolar - and I mean no disrespect to people with bipolar disorder. I was depressed, euphoric, angry, distant and goofy – sometimes all in the same day. It must have been tough for my wife and my son to live with me, and the closer the 29th got, the more up and down I became.
The day the catheter left
2013-10-15 5:16:11 PM
A catheter is a long tube about a foot in diameter that’s shoved up your penis through the urethra into your bladder. Okay, it’s really not that large – maybe an eighth to a quarter of an inch in diameter. It’s made up of two tubes, one long and one short. The long one ends up in your bladder and has a bulb on the end to hold it inside the bladder. The short tube is used to fill the bulb with saline. When you want to take the catheter out, you cut the short tube to let the saline out, then pull the long tube out.
