We plan to proceed with “Virtual” Monthly Support Meetings until
we get the approval to meet in person again at the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency location.

PCCN-Regina has been rebranded as PROSTATE CANCER SUPPORT REGINA 
under the Prostate Cancer Support Canada banner sponsored by The Prostate Cancer Foundation of BC.

Our next meeting is on
Thursday, May 12, 2022.

6:15pm – Registration & Test Log In
6:30pm – 7:30pm – Presentation and Q&A
7:30pm – 8:30pm – Members Open Forum

 

Program:
Is Medical Cannabis Safe for the Heart?

 

Presenter:
Dr. Paul Oh’s April 18, 2019 video – Getting into and out of the Weeds will be presented, introducing components of cannabis, and what the effects are on the heart.


 A Q&A session follows the video presentation and our meeting concludes with peer to peer sharing and support.

We can still be reached through any one of the following options:

– Email us at info@pccnregina.ca

– Check a copy of our newsletter for the list of phone numbers for Board members

 

Board members are just a phone call away for those needing to speak to someone one-on-one who has firsthand experience navigating their prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment, and symptoms. We may be able to connect you to a member who has undergone specific therapies or treatments if you want to chat about side effects or the specific treatment process.

 

We understand that social distancing and self-isolation can be lonely, but remember: we are all in this together and you’re not alone. Cancer doesn’t stop for self-isolation or quarantine.

 

The safety of our members is crucial, and we will respect the decisions of our health leaders and make all adjustments as required.

Stay safe everyone.

 

Thank You

The Board of Directors,
Prostate Cancer Support Regina
