Circle September 10th on your calendar and save the date.

Why? We will be holding our 2020 AGM at 6:30pm on September 10th.

Prostate Cancer Canada Network – Regina Inc. is a non-profit corporation registered in the Province of Saskatchewan and a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. COVID-19 has disrupted our monthly support group meetings last March and our board is monitoring when we can safely resume regular meetings when directed by public health and safety authorities. While we cannot meet in person, the work to educate and support men and their loved ones diagnosed with prostate cancer continues despite a global pandemic and health emergency. This fall we will be resuming our monthly support meetings using videoconferencing starting September 10th.
 
 

The law requires charities and non-profits to hold an annual general meeting of members. Our support group’s AGM was not held as planned in June. 
Please accept this invitation to attend and participate at our Annual General Meeting and first support group meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 10, 2020 using Google Meet videoconferencing. The AGM’s agenda will stick to the basics – review of the 2019 AGM minutes, acceptance of the 2019-20 annual report and financial statements, and election of directors for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. To register, click on the link below. We look forward to seeing you on September 10th using Google Meet.

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

– Email us at pccn.regina@gmail.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.

Thank You
The Board of Directors,
PCCN – Regina

One on One
You may not want to ask questions at a group meeting. You may want to speak with someone having the same issues. You may want to talk with someone who has gone through the same treatment you are considering. Or after treatment, you may be dealing with complications.

We have members who are willing to meet with you and offer their help. Contact us by phone or email, we will try to arrange something.

Our Goals

– To provide individual support and up-to-date, well-researched medical information from authorized sources; to assist individuals with prostate cancer and their families to cope with and understand the nature of prostate cancer.
 
– Share experiences and promote empathy among survivors.
 
– Promote awareness of prostate cancer and associated issues; as well as early diagnosis and treatment.
 
– Promote public education, outreach, and support through integrity, dignity, and understanding.
 
– Encourage a greater sense of partnering with our medical practitioners, and attaining empowerment through knowledge and information.
