When you are in the midst of a personal cancer battle, having the support of peers and knowledgeable professionals can make a huge difference.

The organization's general meetings are designed for people in the Calgary area and beyond who have experienced prostate cancer or are currently on a journey with the disease, along with their wives, children, and other family members.

PROSTAID Calgary is committed to providing you and your loved ones with resources, including community connections, medical updates, and scientific information.

Connect With Peers

A recent report published in the European Journal of Cancer Care shows that peer support groups can provide a number of benefits for cancer survivors or those in the process of battling the disease, as such meetings help create realistic expectations for treatment, develop healthy coping strategies, and share information. The PROSTAID Calgary support groups are open to everyone, no matter what your current status in life may be. There are no fees attached, and the meetings are intended to be a place for encouragement and sharing.

“Our monthly meetings feature prominent health specialists and include an opportunity to catch up with old friends or make new connections,” explains a spokesperson. “Our aim is to assist and support patients, families, and friends by informing, empathizing with and reassuring men on their journey with prostate cancer.”

Share Your Experiences

The peer-to-peer general meetings include an open forum for you to share your own experiences with cancer and hear from others as part of a group mission to lift spirits and strengthen collective resolve to fight for a high quality of life and a cure.

Overall objectives at PROSTAID Calgary include mutual support for you and your family, an increased public awareness and understanding of prostate cancer, and ongoing advocacy efforts towards a strong provincial voice in matters relating to the disease.

Hear From Experts

While the meetings feature presentations from recognized specialists, including researchers, physicians, oncologists, and academics, the organization notes that the information at meetings is not intended to be taken as medical advice.

The upcoming January general meeting at PROSTAID Calgary will take place on January 17, 2024 and features a presentation on new developments in prostate cancer radiotherapy, from Dr. Harvey Quon, a Radiation Oncologist and Clinical Associate Professor at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and University of Calgary.
