Get involved with Prostate Cancer Support Ottawa (PCSO)

Prostate Cancer Support Ottawa (PCSO) is 100% volunteer-run.

As a result, we rely on volunteers to help our organization to function.

But getting involved with PCS is about more than keeping it operational.

For many of us, contributing is part of survival.

Benefits of volunteering

Ask any of our volunteers, and you will find that many of us learn and find comfort by doing things with other survivors of prostate cancer.

In fact, participating in the community helps sustain our quality of life.

So not only is your help needed—you’ll also find it immensely rewarding.

Who can volunteer?

Absolutely anyone - patients, survivors, spouses, and all other supporters in the fight to end prostate cancer.
