The Walnut, Winter 2018

In this issue, we provide an overview of treatment options including what has been learned about some of the genetic links to the disease, as well as immunotherapies and other emerging treatments.

We also discuss the role of clinical trials in testing new treatment options, and present personal accounts from a cancer survivor in Ottawa who has participated in a clinical trial, and from an Ottawa oncologist involved in clinical trials.

Waller St. Brewing "Flights for Hope" donation to PCCNO

In November, the good folks at Waller Street Brewing selected PCCNO as the recipient of their latest "Flights For Hope" fundraising event. Known as "Ottawa's tiny little Prohibition Craft Brewery", the Waller Street Brewing team (Marc-Andre and Marie-Eve Chainey, Eli Dagher and George Bush) believe that being part of a community means taking part and giving back which includes supporting local causes and events. Flights for Hope is their way of helping out some of the smaller local charities, non-profits, and other fund-raising efforts.


The Walnut, November 2017


The Walnut, Autumn 2017

In this issue, we look at how caregivers can help to meet the psycho-social needs of patients as part of a comprehensive treatment approach. We look at the impact on families and friends, and explore how caregivers can find support themselves to continue the crucial and sometimes difficult roles they play.

October Meeting

This month we are having our occasional Friendship Circle in which everyone will have an opportunity to introduce themself and say as much, or as little, as they wish about their prostate cancer situation. This tradition is an excellent way to connect with others who may be able to offer encouragement or trade experiences on a more personal level.

We also hope to be able to show some excerpts from the videos of our recent very successful Conference.
