GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE
November is here – that time of year when donors like you help us to raise the funds that will fuel next year’s work at our Centre. Lots of people will get involved in facial hair growing challenges this month but did you know that none of those dollars support the programs and services at Island Prostate Centre? A portion of the funds that are raised by the organization (that rhymes with November) are distributed as far as Australia but Vancouver Island men with prostate cancer who visit IPC do not benefit.
Surprising, right? Tell your friends!
IPC has been helping local men and their families, every month of the year for more than 17 years. We directly support them while they navigate their cancer diagnosis, treatment options, and ultimate prognosis.
Island Prostate Centre needs your help! Please support our fundraising campaign by giving where you live.
This is Rick’s Story
Learning that I have prostate cancer and that it had spread in my body was the worst day of my life. I had immediate surgery and still have a long road ahead as I finish hormone treatment and move on to 33 sessions of radiation. I’ve experienced some really low moments.
Island Prostate Centre was here to help me.
When I decided to attend my first Prostate Cancer Support Group meeting, I was in a pretty bad place. I was completely overwhelmed and to make it worse, I couldn’t help but notice that I was the youngest guy in the room. I received excellent support that helped me to realize that my job right now is to take time for self care and healing. I’ll do anything I can to be well again – I am way too young to think about not being here.
I’m feeling hopeful as I move through my prostate cancer treatment. And it’s great to be back on my Harley again! I still have an uphill battle with some pretty serious treatment ahead, but I know that Island Prostate Centre will continue to be here for me.
Please help other men on Vancouver Island by making a donation or by taking advantage of the Free Wills program like I did. Please, just do whatever you can. Island Prostate Centre accomplishes all that they do with support from donors like you and me. Take my word for it, they’ve been my lifesaver!
