It’s prostate cancer 101

The Vernon Prostate Cancer Awareness Group welcomes all to its monthly meeting

It’s everything you always wanted to know about prostate cancer but were afraid to ask as the Vernon Prostate Cancer Support and Awareness Group hosts its monthly meeting.

“Come and learn what the prostate is and how it functions,” said group member Lloyd Mitchell. “This is your opportunity to learn how to keep your partner healthy, because he probably needs your help to take that first step.”

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and the group welcomes guest speaker Bren Witt, executive director of the Okanagan Prostate Cancer Society, whom Mitchell calls a fascinating presenter as well as a prostate cancer survivor.

All are welcome to the meeting, Monday at 7:30 p.m. at the People Place, 3402-27th Ave.
