Prostate Cancer Canada is proud to be one of Movember’s Canadian beneficiary partners. Through this relationship we are advancing prostate cancer research and support services for men and their families living with the disease.
In this issue, we look at how the Movember movement is helping to raise awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health.
Movember is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round, addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. In 13 years the Movember organization has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
Prostate cancer and its treatment can affect your sex life in three ways - your mind, body and relationships. In this issue, we describe the kinds of treatment and support that is available, and ways for you to work through any problems.

Listen up, it’s only cancer.
Not something to get upset about.
Not a broom to sweep you off
your feet. It moves slowly.
You could say it almost drifts
like an iceberg. Mostly submerged.
Rides currents that you will never see.
Cheer up, it’s not going to swallow you
today. It’s a big project. Takes time.
Meanwhile splash in the shallows.
Stroll at sundown on golden sand.
Get yourself a beer from the fridge.
Some things are certain in this world.
That bottle. Ice-cold in your hand.
It was recently discovered that research causes cancer in rats.
And, the things that come to those who wait may be the things left by those who got there first.
