Next Awareness Night meeting: Wed. Nov. 24, 2021, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.  The Awareness Night Meetings are being held temporarily on the Zoom teleconferencing platform.  Please follow the link in the banner at the top of every page for details.  Once the Covid-19 pandemic is over, we may go back to in-person meetings, at least for some.  On these occasions, leading medical professionals speak on a range of topics related to prostate cancer and then, following a break, answer your questions. Family members and friends are welcome to attend. If you are on our mailing list, a notice of each event will be sent to you.
