Canada has over 60 Prostate Cancer Support Groups that meet once a month. This Richmond group in British Columbia is founded in 2013 by volunteers and focused on providing help to Chinese-speaking men, but everyone is welcome. We speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin, meet on the second Thursday of every month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Seniors Centre of Minoru Centre for Active Living (7191 Granville Avenue, Richmond, BC V6Y 1N9 Multipurpose Room 1 (1033)). 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.

No registration is required and all ages are welcome. Please swipe your Facility Pass ($36/year for seniors 55+ or spouses) or pay a $5 drop-in fee at the front desk when arriving for each session.

If you want to chat one on one with a survivor, you may drop in our walking club. The Richmond Blue Walkers walk 5-10 km on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 am-11 am, along the beautiful river dykes and parks in Richmond (Walk in the Richmond Shopping Centre during the rainy days or cold seasons).

TrueNTH Advanced Care Webinar - November 19, 2015 Thursday 9pm PST

Webinar Title: TrueNTH: Advance Care Planning: It's how we care for each other.

Speakers: Dale Erikson and Louise Hanvey

Description: Advance care planning is a process of reflection and communication. It is a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let people know what kind of health and personal care  you would want in the future if you become unable to consent or refuse treatment or other care. This webinar will provide information about why advance care planning is important for men with prostate cancer, and how to do advance care planning.

The purpose of this workshop is to:
1.            Provide an overview of what advance care planning (ACP) is,
2.            Foster understanding as to why ACP is important for people living with prostate cancer,
3.            Help men with prostate cancer, their partners and families learn the steps involved in the ACP process, and how to start these types of conversations,
4.            Familiarize participants with the available resources on ACP.

Please register for this TrueNTH Advanced Care Planning webinar on Thursday November 19th, 2015 5:00 PM PST at: <>

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email from Dale containing information about joining the webinar.

Thanks a lot, Anne
