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). Click here for the schedule or contact Daniel Leung at 604-836-6423 for the locations and meeting places.

Invitation to participate in a research project – Chinese Canadian prostate cancer survivor and caregiver participants needed

What is this study about? An application designed to virtually deliver follow-up care to people
with prostate cancer (virtual follow-up care) has been created. At the University of Toronto, we
are trying to find out how this application can better support the health of Chinese Canadian
people in the survivorship phase of their prostate cancer trajectory and their caregivers.

Who is eligible to participate in this study? If you are a Chinese Canadian prostate cancer
survivor or a caregiver, we would like your input on your experiences receiving prostate cancer
follow-up care and what support you would like to have through a virtual clinic. The information
from the interviews will be used to help design a virtual care clinic that can support Chinese
Canadian prostate cancer survivors receiving follow-up care. The information you provide for
this study will be kept private and confidential.

You will receive $50.00 per hour as a thank-you for agreeing to be interviewed. For more
information, please see the attached Letters of Information for Survivors and Caregivers.

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact the study coordinator,
Ms. Karen Young, by phone or email at:

Phone: 604-600-5870
Thank you for considering to help with this project!
