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).

Celebrate the Month of Love ... Kiss. Share. Give.

As a valued Prostate Cancer Canada supporter, we want you to be the first to know about a new initiative we’re undertaking to help all those affected by the most common forms of cancer in both women and men.
Love conquers all, and in that spirit, we're thrilled to announce the launch of our historic partnership with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Our jointKiss2Cure movement harnesses the power of love to make a real difference in the lives of women, men and families affected by breast and prostate cancer.
Watch the above video to hear the stories of Jeannette Labbé and Joe Turner of Calgary andDavid Brittain and Jane Rannie of Ottawa, two couples who have been affected by prostate and breast cancer. 
Starting today and leading up to Valentine's Day, we're inviting you, and Canadians everywhere to Kiss2Cure.

Participate for a chance to win 1 of 5 trips to a romantic destination!*

Making a difference is as easy as Kiss-2-3!
  1. Snap a photo kissing a loved one to help raise awareness about the most common cancers in men and women.
  2. Share your photo online using hashtag #Kiss2Cure for a chance to win 1 of 5 flights for two courtesy of Air Canada*.

So whether it's a romantic smooch with your partner or a peck on the cheek with a friend or family member, every kiss shared will help us get closer to creating a future without breast and prostate cancer.
