The Walnut, Spring 2020

In recent weeks, our world has changed dramatically, and in some ways, possibly forever, due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is especially problematic for people living with serious health issues and/or compromised immune systems, and also for people over the age of 60. In this issue we will update you on what the Canadian Cancer Society says about cancer and COVID-19 and how PCCN Ottawa is adapting.

We will also take a look at a range of treatment options and strategies for living with and managing prostate cancer, including coping with stress, eating right and learning how exercise can give you a much-needed boost, both mentally and physically. Additionally, we have information about new ADT online classes, plus a personal story from a local, longtime cancer survivor and PCCN Ottawa board member.
