Despite prostate cancer being the #1, most prevalent, cancer in men, it is also one of the most underfunded


Prostate cancer impacts thousands of men and their families each year in BC.  More than 3000 men will have been diagnosed in BC in 2019 alone.

Prostate Cancer Foundation BC represents many of B.C.’s prostate cancer patients, their families, and their communities, led and supported by many volunteers.  It is our goal to minimize the impact that prostate cancer has on these men, to provide hope for better outcomes, and to narrow the gender gap seen in cancer support in BC.

The Foundation’s fundraising provides the resources for programs throughout the province, allowing us to assist and maintain local support groups and to catalyst research projects and doctoral fellowships, so that the best medical researchers have the equipment and resources to search for better treatment and a cure for prostate cancer.

The Westcoast Ride to Live is one of our largest events and over the last 11 years, we have raised more than 1.6 million dollars for prostate cancer support, awareness, and research.
