On October 5, 2016, the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network welcomed MPPs, staff, prostate cancer patients, survivors and caregivers and community partners at its fifth annual Legislative Reception at Queen’s Park in Toronto. This event highlighted the challenges faced by prostate cancer patients and their families and the increasing number of treatment options that provide a good quality of life while living with this disease. One of the most exciting developments was the involvement of patients, survivors and caregivers and how well they represented the issues of the prostate cancer community in their regions of Ontario.
