Calgary Prostate Cancer Treatment Support: Meetings For Warriors & Caregivers

Jul 3, 2024

Curious about prostate health and looking to connect with others who share your concerns? Join PROSTAID Calgary’s monthly meetings for information, support, or a friendly chat.

Hubert H. Humphrey once said, "The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love," and this perfectly describes the support offered by PROSTAID Calgary to those affected by prostate cancer.

Join PROSTAID Calgary for their general and specialized monthly meetings, where you can discuss health issues and find community.

The general meetings, like the recent AGM on June 12th, are open to everyone. They feature leading health experts and are a great chance for members to reconnect with friends or make new ones.

The Prostate Cancer Awareness Mission

Prostate cancer is among the most prevalent cancer diagnoses for men in the United States, and support organizations are crucial in educating men about early detection, treatment options, and lifestyle changes that can improve outcomes. PROSTAID Calgary aims to enhance public awareness and understanding of the disease through its general meetings, offered free of charge to all.

Support For Survivors & Hormone Refractory Members

With advancements in medical treatments, more men are living longer after a prostate cancer diagnosis. However, patients and survivors often experience long-term physical, emotional, and psychological effects from the disease and its treatment, such as urinary incontinence, bowel issues, anxiety, extreme fatigue, and PTSD. 

If you're a prostate cancer warrior, survivor, or caregiver, PROSTAID Calgary also facilitates specialized monthly meetings to help improve quality of life after diagnosis.

These meetings are an informal gathering where patients and their families can:

  • network
  • share access to clinical trials
  • share knowledge and experience in management of advanced disease
  • find emotional support to reduce feelings of isolation and depression

President of PROSTAID Calgary and prostate cancer survivor, Brad Sterling, believes that friends, family, and support groups are invaluable on the journey with prostate cancer. “This is a marathon, and you cannot do it alone,” he says.

“Our objective is to assist and support patients, families and friends by informing, empathizing and reassuring men on their journey with prostate cancer. By sharing our own experiences with cancer we lift our spirits and strengthen our resolve to fight for quality of life and a cure,” Brad Sterling adds.
