British Columbia has over 20 Prostate Cancer Support Groups meet once a month. This Richmond group is found in 2013 and focused on providing help to Chinese-speaking men, but everyone is welcome. We speak Mandarin, Cantonese and English, meet on the second Thursday of every month from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at the Richmond Public Library (2/F Brighouse Main Branch, 7700 Minoru Gate, Richmond, BC V6Y 1R8).

Join us for the professional presentation and talk to other men and family members who have been dealing with prostate cancer for weeks, months or even years.

Hello to all interested prostate cancer support group folks:
In 2013 the BC Prostate Cancer Support Group Council with the support of Prostate Cancer Foundation BC (and several terrific sponsors) held a highly successful conference in Vancouver.
We are going to do it again - - in September of 2016:
  • A workshop to enlighten, to inspire, and to expand your horizons.
  • Save the date on your calendars now.  
  • Plan your trips and vacations around this weekend so as not to miss out.
  • September 23(Fri), 24(Sat), 25(Sun), 2016.
  • For registration please click here.

Kevin Higgins,
Chair,  Prostate Cancer Foundation BC Support Group Council 
In 2013 we put together a set of workshops that provided a double focus:
  1. successful support group leadership
  2. new and exciting advances in prostate cancer care and treatment 
And we are ready to do it again.
This year we will be combining our efforts with the Pacific Northwest Prostate Cancer Conference.  This is an exciting full day of "the latest findings regarding prostate cancer treatment, prevention, survivorship and scientific progress" put together by the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute of Portland, OR, the University of Washington School of Medicine and the University of British Columbia Cancer Agency Research Centre.  This will be our Saturday (Nov 24) program.
