About Prostate Cancer Canada
The foundation was founded in 1994 by Ron Evason. A year after his diagnosis with prostate cancer, he “realized that there was little, if any, high caliber research being done for the disease.” The initial goal was therefore to fund research into causes, cures and prevention of the disease. In 1999, the foundation merged with the Canadian Prostate Cancer Research Fund and became the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada. In 2009, they rebranded to what they are known as today, Prostate Cancer Canada.
Today, they are the leading national foundation in Canada whose purpose is to eliminate prostate cancer through “research, advocacy, support and awareness.”
“Prostate Cancer Canada’s vision is to be a global leader in the fight against prostate cancer, earning the enthusiasm and support of Canadians through integrity, compassion, and innovation.”
