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).

April Testicular Cancer Awareness Month 睾丸癌關注月

Display images to show real-time content
A guy's nuts need a lot more love than you think, so don't leave them hanging. 

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men yet our research has found that majority of men never or rarely perform a self-examination. This April, the Movember Foundation is going balls-out for Testicular Cancer Awareness Month and asking men to #KnowThyNuts. 

See how you can get involved
How to check 'em
Finding out what's normal for a man's nuts could save their life, as most lumps and bumps on their nuts are not cancer. Early detection is key when it comes to testicular cancer. You can raise awareness of what to look out for and help encourage men to see a doctor if something doesn't feel right down there.
Limited Edition Product Range
There's lots of ways you can get involved during Testicular Cancer Awareness Month and support the men's health programs we fund. The limited edition soap on a rope is an ideal reminder for men to check their nuts when they're in the shower. We've also got Movember x RLTD underwear and a testicular cancer awareness pin to wear your support proudly. 
The Movember Foundation is the number one global funder of testicular cancer programs. With your help, we can continue to fund much-needed cancer research and support services.
