May 14, 2024

‘The more you know, the better prepared you are!’ Prostaid Calgary, a prostate cancer support organization, is saving lives with its monthly meetings in Calgary.

On April 17th, members of the Prostaid Calgary organization met to discuss updates on prostate cancer research. Dr. Geoffrey Gotto was a speaker at the event held at CKE Community Centre, Calgary.

If you detect prostate cancer early by getting screened and checking in with your doctor regularly, plus with all the advances in treatment, you can significantly increase your chances of a successful outcome.

What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate cancer is a serious illness that develops in the prostate glands of men. Approximately 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime, and it is more likely to develop in older men above 65. However, the risk of prostate cancer varies based on factors like age, race/ethnicity, and genetics.

Journey Assistance With Prostaid Calgary

Since 1993, Prostaid Calgary has been helping folks in Calgary and nearby areas. The organization is all about lending a hand and offering support to patients, sharing their own cancer stories to lift your mood and boost your determination to strive for a better quality of life.

Right now, the group hosts monthly meetings in Calgary, Alberta, to spread the word, share information, and talk about issues related to prostate cancer. Every third Wednesday of the month, you can join a Prostaid Calgary meeting either in person or online. It's free!

At every meeting, Prostaid Calgary features a medical guest speaker or health specialist to address a select topic of discussion. They also allow time for you to share individual experiences and ask questions. 

Join a Meeting for Warriors’ Groups 

In advanced stages where prostate cancer spreads to other parts of the body, treatment may focus on easing symptoms and slowing the progress of the disease rather than curing it.

Prostaid Calgary arranges a separate monthly meeting for warriors; members of Prostaid Calgary whose cancers have stopped responding to hormone therapy; and other people who are interested in the management of advanced prostate cancer. 

This meeting is quite informal and focuses on:

  • networking
  • sharing experiences
  • discussing new medical developments
  • sharing access to clinical trials.

In addition to the meetings for warriors and the general public, Prostaid Calgary also holds support meetings for wives and caregivers looking to offer journey assistance. You can sign up on the platform to receive meeting reminders and monthly newsletters from the organization. 

Remember, the information Prostaid Calgary shares is not a substitute for professional medical advice or diagnosis. They recommend that you seek the advice of your physician regarding questions about any medical condition.
