Prostate Cancer Centre
We love 'em!
Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre (PCC) is a non-profit, world-class medical centre with a mandate to prevent Alberta men from dying of prostate cancer, and to improve the quality of their lives and their families lives in the process. Annually, over 9000 men and their families visit the Prostate Cancer Centre. The Centre pursues its mission by reaching out to individuals, corporations, and others to channel resources – both financial and human – to fight this deadly disease.
Founded in 1999, the Prostate Cancer Centre has been a pioneer in creating the Man VanTM Program. This program goes out into the communities of Calgary and rural southern Alberta. Its two mobile PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood testing clinics not only provide baseline PSA tests for men aged 40 and older, but they also create awareness about the importance of early detection of prostate cancer as it is treatable if caught early.
