ROYAL ARCH PROSTATE CANCER FUND

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and the third most common cause of cancer death in men.   
  • An estimated 18,800 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2003. An estimated 4,200 will die from the disease.
  • A man has a one in eight chance of developing prostate cancer in his lifetime.
  • Since 1991, death rates for prostate cancer have fallen by more than 10 per cent.
The Royal Arch Masons Prostate Cancer Fund is a project of the Royal Arch Masons of Saskatchewan in conjunction with Prostrate Cancer Canada . It’s purpose is to raise funds to increase the awareness of prostate cancer. To educate people in Saskatchewan about it’s devastating effects, about the research that is done in order to cure it and prevent it and how to live with this disease.

Prostate Cancer Canada speaks for thousands of men and their families who, each year, are diagnosed with prostate cancer. With our 120 affiliated support groups (5 in Saskatchewan) across Canada we:
  • help individuals and their families understand and cope with prostate cancer by providing up to date medical information and individual support
  • lobby for increased funding for research, treatment facilities and programs
  • promote the importance of early detection through public awareness campaigns
