We are a Prostate Cancer Support Group
Helping men in Oakville, Mississauga, Milton and surrounding areas.
COVID UPDATE: Wellspring centres across the country are reopening to in-person programming after the Covid-19 shut-downs. Due to the success of online programming, many programs and webinars are still available online via Well-on-the-Web.
Well known radiation oncologist Dr Andrew Loblaw from the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre will be our guest in April.
Dr Loblaw will talk about advances in stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SBRT or SABR).This type of treatment allows for large doses of radiation delivered under image guidance to tumours within or located anywhere in the body with only 1-5 treatments. Sunnybrook is one of the largest SBRT delivery centres in Canada, offering SBRT for multiple cancer sites including lung, prostate, and spine.
This meeting will be by Zoom to ensure access to the widest possible audience. Please contact us for the Zoom link.
Individual support is still available. In the past months, several men have got in touch with us and have been connected with others who are at the same stage of treatment or who are dealing with the same side-effects. Thanks to the great networking of support groups across Ontario, we can reach out to other groups if necessary to find the right person for you to talk to.
Other Support Groups
Several other local support groups have monthly meetings and presentations that are open to all. Check here
Nationwide virtual support groups for men (and their families) are available through Prostate Cancer Support Canada, dealing with both advanced prostate cancer and active surveillance. Also, there is a Partners in Prostate group specifically to help the partners of men dealing with prostate cancer.
