about Prostate Cancer Canada

Prostate Cancer Canada is the only national foundation dedicated to the elimination of this disease through research, education, support and awareness. Working with men, women and families from coast to coast, it is their goal to ensure that Canadians are knowledgeable about the disease, know about the risks and are aware of the importance of early detection of prostate cancer.

One in seven Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, the most common cancer to affect Canadian men. In fact, prostate cancer is as prevalent to men as breast cancer is to women. With such high incidence of this disease, early detection is of absolute importance. Over 90% of prostate cancer cases are curable if detected and treated during their earliest stages.

Prostate Cancer Canada encourages men over the age 40, as part of their annual checkup, to initiate a conversation with their doctor about early detection of prostate cancer, which may include PSA testing and a digital rectal exam (DRE).

about Photosensitive

PhotoSensitive, a not-for-profit group of photographers, was founded in 1990. Their idea was to bring together the photographic talents of a number of professional photographers to harness the power of the camera to achieve social goals within Canada and beyond. They believed an excellent photograph has the potential to effect social change, to make a difference, to expand a viewer's field of vision. Each photographer would bring his or her own vision to the subject; the sum of these visions would provide a compelling social comment.

For two decades PhotoSensitive has been covering subjects as diverse as AIDS, the environment, homelessness, child poverty, the tsunami and cancer, to name but a few. With the help of hundreds of contributing photographers and the partner organizations that believe in their work, PhotoSensitive has created close to 20 exhibitions and hundreds of stunning black-and-white photographs that have helped raise awareness and funds for many charities.
