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). Please register online at The Richmond Public Library website (or call 604-231-6413 for registration). 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.
If you want to chat with a survivor one on one, you may drop in our walking club. The Richmond Blue Walkers walk on every Tuesdays and Thursdays 10am-12pm, 5-10 km along the beautiful river dykes and parks in Richmond (Walk in the Richmond Shopping Centre during the raining days or cold seasons).

Prostate Cancer Study from Australia 澳大利亞前列腺癌研究
prostate cancer treatment. Many men are reluctant to get help for their sexual concerns, and
when they do, often men do not continue with treatment.
To date there is little research to help us understand men’s concerns about their sexual
health after prostate cancer and how they prefer to address these concerns. Our online Men
and Sexual Health – Prostate Cancer study will explore men’s concerns about their sexual
health, what contributes to their decisions to seek support, and from whom they prefer to
receive this support. This is an international study which is supported by cancer control
organisations, health professionals, and universities in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and
The Men and Sexual Health - Prostate Cancer study is an online survey that will take
approximately 30 to 40 minutes of your time. The survey asks about your sexual concerns,
side effects after prostate cancer treatment, quality of life, decisions to use services, and the
services that you prefer.
If you are aged over 18 years, have had treatment for Prostate Cancer and would like to
share your experience and help other men affected by prostate cancer please type in the
following URL into your web browser. www.menandprostatecancer.org
In addition to this, in the survey we will ask your permission to contact you again to complete
another survey in 6 months and 12 months so that we can understand if you’re sexual
concerns and need for support services change over time.
