Our Meetings

 We meet every month in friendly, no-pressure environment of Wellspring Birmingham-Gilgan House and are always ready to welcome visitors. Whether you want to come once or on a regular basis, please know that the group is there for you, ready with experience, encouragement, understanding and support. We understand that some men are reluctant to open up on a first visit and we are quite happy if you choose just to sit and listen. The choice is yours. See more under Our Meetings.

September: our speaker is Dr. Stuart Edmonds, Vice President of Research for Prostate Cancer Canada.

Ever wonder where that money goes that people like us donate to PCC or the money that gets raised via the annual Movember campaign? Stuart will describe the process used to select research projects for funding and will describe the exciting breakthroughs and potentials that are on hand thanks to the fund raising efforts of PCC and Movember.


October: will be a discussion evening with lots of time for round-table sharing of questions and ideas. We update each other on our status, learn from each other’s experiences and happily answer questions from new members and guests.


November: the most asked-for and popular topic at PC support groups across the country is that of the sexual side-effects of PC treatment. Most such talks focus on the male ‘plumbing’ and mechanisms for improving ‘performance’. What is often missed is the emotional side of the issue, the ‘couples’ side of the issue. Our speakers this month, from Trillium Health Centre, will deal with the emotional aspects of sexual dysfunction and ways to cope.

So if you have issues, and most of us do, and you just want to sit quietly and listen, then this meeting is for you. Even better, tell your spouse or partner and have them come along with you.


December: yes, we do meet in December. A year-end wrap up and thoughts for next year. A time to reflect on the year gone by, with progress for some and set-backs for others. More discussion time supplemented with topical videos from recent prostate cancer meetings and presentations.
