Prostate Cancer Canada

Prostate Cancer Canada raises funds for the development of programs related to awareness, public education, advocacy, support of those affected, and research into the prevention, detection, treatment and cure of prostate cancer.

Prostate Cancer Canada Prostate Cancer Canada is the only Canadian national foundation dedicated to the elimination of the disease through research, education support and awareness.

PCC funds research that will uncover better diagnostic and treatment options and provides comprehensive support services for those living with prostate cancer.

Founded by Ron Evason in 1994, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Canada's mission was to support research into the cause, cure, and prevention of prostate cancer.

The Foundation worked tirelessly with professionals and organizations to advance the prostate cancer cause. A 1997 National Prostate Cancer Forum brought together 150 stakeholders to develop direction for future research, communication, and advocacy activities. The Foundation continued to move forward on forum recommendations by participating in the Prostate Cancer Alliance of Canada.

In July 1999, the Foundation merged with the Canadian Prostate Cancer Research Fund, to become the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada. Since then, the Foundation has become one of Canada's foremost organizations dedicated solely to raising funds for research to eliminate prostate cancer.

In May 2009, after ten years of successful fundraising and research efforts, the Foundation re-branded itself from the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada to Prostate Cancer Canada.
