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).

The 2019 PCFBC Events

The Latest & Greatest From
PCFBC & Upcoming Events
In the fall of 2018 the Foundation was busy with fundraisers and awareness. November was Pubs for Prostate month, pubs from across the province participated and raised over $5,000 and counting! Thank you to all pubs and patrons who came out and supported the cause. The Surrey Eagles Hockey Team also jumped on board with custom made Prostate Cancer Foundation BC jerseys. These limited edition jerseys were worn at their November 30th game against the Chilliwack Chiefs, and then auctioned off online with proceeds supporting prostate cancer research. The auction and hockey game created awareness around the importance of early detection through PSA testing. A huge thank you to the Surrey Eagles team, coaches and volunteers who helped make this event great! In December PCFBC was nominated to be one of the presenting charities at Give A Damn Vancouver. Over $4,700 dollars was raised that night for PCFBC. Thank you Give a Damn Vancouver for the opportunity, great event and your generous donation.
Our Support Group Leaders are always busy recruiting amazing speakers to educate their groups each month. Coming up on January 26th the Surrey Support Group has Jonathan Ley, health and life coach, speaking on how different foods create and eliminate inflammation in your body. He currently works with prostate cancer patients and other patients with stage 4 cancer.
The Coquitlam Support Group now has a Facebook page! You can find them at Coquitlam Prostate Cancer Support Group. Please make sure to follow and share their page in your community. Stop by and see our Chilliwack Support Group at the Chilliwack Home Leisure & Outdoor Living Expo this weekend, January 25th - 27th.
2018 PCFBC Grant Awards

Prostate Cancer Foundation BC awarded three research grants in 2018 for a total of $125,000. These grants will provide the means for valuable research to continue at the Vancouver Prostate Centre and BC Cancer. Ultimately working towards improving treatment and lives for men fighting prostate cancer. The three recipients were Jake Noble, Xinpei Ci and Shahram Khosravi. Thank you to all who donated, fund raised and volunteered in 2018. Without your support we would not be able to continue to fund life saving research.
