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.
Support meetings are not held during July and August.
Program: September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month!
Join us as we discuss the benefits of support groups and listen to Boyd Harrison talk about how he learned about Prostate Cancer Support Regina meetings, what being a member has meant for him, and why it matters for his cancer journey. Boyd was diagnosed with prostate cancer during the spring of 2019 and received a radical prostatectomy on November 20, 2019, in Saskatoon, under the care of Dr. Jana and the Prostate Assessment Pathway Nurse Navigator Nicole Babba. A Q&A session concludes his presentation, followed by peer-to-peer sharing.
6:15pm – Registration & log-in test
6:30pm – 8:30pm – Presentation followed by Q&A and peer sharing
We can still be reached through any one of the following options:
– Email us at email@example.com
– 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.
