The Calgary Prostate Centre
Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre (PCC) is a non-profit, world-class medical facility for men with prostate cancer in Southern Alberta. The Centre communicates with the public about the importance of early detection in order to eliminate death from advanced prostate cancer. The Centre is entirely patient-focused, guiding and supporting men through the entire process. 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.
MAN VAN Program
Founded in 1999, Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre has been a pioneer in creating the MAN VAN Program which goes out into the communities of Calgary and rural southern Alberta. Its two mobile PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood testing clinics provide baseline PSA tests for men aged 40 and older and create awareness about the importance of early detection of prostate cancer as it is treatable if caught early.
