Prostate Cancer Support Ottawa (PCSO)

Prostate Cancer Support Ottawa is a volunteer organization of prostate cancer survivors and our supporters. Our aim is to:

  • help men recently diagnosed with prostate cancer.
  • provide support for men and their families who continue to live with recurrent cancer, and
  • promote awareness of this disease and the associated issues.

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you are not alone. We would like to help you. We offer:

  • Telephone contact so that we may be able to help with your first confrontation with diagnosis and treatment questions. We do NOT provide medical advice.
  • Sharing sessions for newly diagnosed patients where discussion takes place with other prostate cancer survivors. Information kits are distributed.
  • Monthly meetings where you can obtain information, attend presentations on prostate cancer topics, and meet with other prostate cancer patients/survivors.
  • Matching of patients so that you can share, hear firsthand experiences, and form your own personal support group.
  • A quarterly newsletter that describes the group’s activities, events, and reports on interesting medical news.
