列治文華人前列腺癌支援網絡加入了2018年6月17日父親節的籌款5k步行/10k跑步!
我們相信如果不能避免癌症,那就為生命奔跑吧,這就是我們計劃要做的!
當接近父親節的時候,我們要求你加強對抗前列腺癌的鬥爭,
並支持贊助你所愛的團隊成員。
謝謝!
I believe that if you can't run from it ....then run for it, and that is what I plan to do!
As we move closer to Father’s Day, I am asking you to step up the fight against prostate cancer and support the men you love. 

Would you help our team and donate to Prostate Cancer Foundation BC’s annual Walk / Run for Prostate Cancer?
 Raymond James Ltd. is proud to partner with the Prostate Cancer Foundation BC and Island Prostate Centre as Presenting Sponsor of June 17, 2018, Raymond James Father’s Day Walk/Run in Metro Vancouver, Victoria, Chilliwack, Kamloops and Kelowna.

 HOW CAN YOU HELP?
 Support our team and me and donate to Prostate Cancer Foundation BC or Island Prostate Centre Annual Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer via my web page below.
  
WHY AM I PARTICIPATING IN THE RUN?
 Because this run is for the tens of thousands of Canadian men living courageously with prostate cancer and their families. It’s for all the men who have died from this disease and the families who have lost loved ones. It’s for the roughly 26,000 men who will be diagnosed in 2018 and everyone who cares about them. 

THE  FATHER'S DAY EVENT
 The annual event hosted by Prostate Cancer Foundation BC and Island Prostate Centre, a volunteer-based organisation that represents BC’s prostate cancer patients, their families and communities. Even if you aren’t a walker or a runner, you can still step up and volunteer or consider donating to PCFBC to fund research for this disease that currently affects 1 in 7 men.
 Every donation, no matter how small, will have a significant impact on men and their families dealing with a diagnosis of prostate cancer in BC. 
  
Thank you in advance for your generosity and for giving the men in your life the gift of health this Father's Day.

Yoga lessens treatment-related symptoms in men with prostate cancer

Yoga lessens treatment-related symptoms in men with prostate cancer

yoga prostate cancer
Decades of research show that yoga can reduce the emotional and physical fatigue brought on by cancer treatment. In 2017, scientists reported for the first time that this is also true specifically for men undergoing treatment for prostate cancer. Men who took a yoga class twice a week during prostate cancer radiation treatment reported less fatigue, fewer sexual side effects, and better urinary functioning than men who did not.
The research team enrolled 50 men ages 53 to 85 who were diagnosed with early or advanced nonmetastatic prostate cancer. Of them, 22 were assigned to yoga classes and the rest did not participate in yoga. All the men received scheduled radiation treatments; 29 of them were also on hormonal therapy, and 19 had been treated previously with surgery. The yoga and control groups were evenly balanced with respect to various cancer treatments as well as treatments for side effects.

Most men eventually develop some type of prostate problem, and when they do there are usually no easy solutions. More than a primer on prostate conditions, this Special Health Report, the Annual Report on Prostate Diseases, includes roundtable discussions with experts at the forefront of prostate research, interviews with men about their treatment decisions, and the latest thinking on complementary therapies. This report will provide you with the information you need to understand the current controversies, avoid common pitfalls, and work with your doctor to make informed choices about your prostate health.

The type of yoga assessed in the study, called Eischens yoga, focuses on holding and maintaining poses, and is accessible for all body types and experience levels. The sessions lasted 75 minutes each. Before, during, and after the nine-week study, men were asked to rate their fatigue, as well as sexual and urinary symptoms.
Men in the yoga group reported improving or stabilizing symptom scores over time, whereas men in the non-yoga group reported worsening symptoms. The authors speculated that yoga improves erectile and urinary function by strengthening core muscles and improving blood flow. They urged men to keep an open mind and to look for a yoga group and instructor with whom they feel comfortable.
To learn more about the latest studies and treatment options for men dealing with prostate issues, read the 2018 Annual Report on Prostate Disease from Harvard Medical School.

TITLE: The changing landscape: Understanding non-metastatic (m0) castration resistant prostate cancer

LENGTH: 23 mins
 
OVERVIEW: This presentation takes a closer look at a critical time within the prostate cancer disease journey between the localized and advanced disease state. Metastasis, when the cancer spreads to a different part of the body, is currently targeted by multiple treatment options available in the market. With the recent SPARTAN and PROSPER clinical trials, there are new drug developments that may target the non-metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer window to further delay metastases. Key tools and imaging options in detecting metastases are also discussed.
SPEAKER: Dr. Robert Hamilton is an uro-oncologic surgeon specializing in prostate cancer at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. He has expertise in minimally invasive surgeries, including robotic surgery.  Dr. Hamilton sees patients at all different stages of prostate cancer from those at risk to this with early diagnoses to advanced disease.  His research interests in prostate cancer include the study of statins and metformin in prostate cancer prevention; whether genetic markers can be used to predict who will benefit from chemoprevention; and biomarkers of prostate cancer aggressiveness.
