Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian men, meaning you likely know at least one man who has faced, or is facing, this disease. 1 in 7 Canadian men will be diagnosed in their lifetime.
There is a tremendous need for greater awareness and education.
We’ve come a long way over the past 20 years: death rates have dropped by 40 per cent but an estimated 4,100 men will still die from prostate cancer this year. A good place to start is to build awareness. Knowledge is power, and the more we know, the better equipped we are to make a difference, whether that’s sharing information, making a donation or taking the steps to visit your health care provider.
