Movember 2020

Movember Canada continues to be a significant source of funding for research into prostate cancer diagnosis & treatment, as well as raising awareness of this most common form of cancer among Canadian men. They also address other areas affecting men’s health including testicular cancer and mental health especially suicide prevention.
We are pleased to announce that through the donations of our many generous sponsors of our Movember Team we were able to raise $4,308 for this great cause in 2020.
Since 2011 when we first joined in supporting Movember the Durham Region sponsors of this important work, through our team campaigns, have raised over $26,000 for this cause. Thank you all very much.

Rebuilding PCS Durham

With the major change to the structure of our support groups, as we learned in December 2019 that Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) would no longer exist as a stand-alone entity, but would be absorbed into the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), we were faced with several challenges. As these are resolved we will be communicating the results of those developments with you. PCC, through having established PCCN (the Prostate Cancer Canada Network) as a network of support groups across Canada, were able to provide quite an extensive array of educational materials, and other services to our groups.
One significant role PCC played was maintaining a register, on the internet, of the support groups across the country which allowed men and their caregivers to find local help in their experience with this, the most common form of cancer in Canadian men. This function, we want to tell you has been re-established through the www.ProstateCancerSupport.ca website which is still being built as more groups are added, now contains the majority of active support groups covering every Province in Canada.
We will add to this posting as new developments, which are receiving our concerted attention, allow. What we can assure you is that support in Durham Region continues to be available to those who need us.

Currently there are no planned public meetings of our Durham support group

We assure you that one on one peer support remains available by contacting us directly. Just go to Contact Us above.

However we are also posting news of on-line events that are available to our members from within our overall Prostate Cancer Support family – Simply go to Events on this site for information on these events from other groups.
