The Canadian Cancer Survivor Net would like to congratulate Stewart Campbell, Chairman of ProstAid Calgary for being the recipient of the 2020 Pathfinder Award. The Pathfinder Award is given to individuals who have made a significant contribution to the education, research, treatment, and support for men and their families dealing with prostate cancer.
In 2007, Stewart was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 59 that had metastasized to several lymph nodes. Throughout his professional life as a scientist in the agricultural processing industry, Stewart was someone others turned to for advice and knowledge. That didn’t change with his cancer diagnosis and since becoming a member of PROSTAID Calgary he has been using his skills to help fellow cancer patients.
Stewart says he is “living with cancer” and has been on the board of directors for many years, having served as Executive Director, Treasurer, and most recently as Chairman.
Even today, while undergoing another round of chemotherapy Stewart unselfishly is willing to share his knowledge with board members, newly diagnosed men and men looking for information about their own treatment options and recurrent disease.
We applaud his initiatives and truly believe that he embodies all the virtues that the Pathfinder Award recognizes and celebrates.
