For those dealing with prostate cancer, the journey from diagnosis to treatment and management of the disease is rarely a road travelled alone. Spouses, partners, children, extended family, friends and even colleagues may share in the burden of this life-changing disease.
The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network (CCSN) recognizes the heavy burden a diagnosis of prostate cancer places not only on the men who are diagnosed with it, but on their families and extended support networks. In response, CCSN is proud to announce the launch of A Family Affair: Prostate Cancer Family and Caregiver Portal, an online portal recognizing and addressing the experience of prostate cancer, whether in its early or more advanced stages, as a family affair.Read more

One of the most publicized patient-led issues today is medical marijuana. The Canadian Cancer Survivor Network is launching our Medical Marijuana survey today to obtain your opinion, find out what you need to know about the issue and to provide answers.
Health Canada introduced new Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) earlier this year, causing much debate, which CCSN has followed.
Since one of our core values is to provide patients and survivors with current knowledge about treatment, options and outcomes in patient care, we felt it was important to begin a dialogue with you about medical marijuana.
