Prostate Cancer

The third most common cause of death from cancer in men of all ages is prostate cancer. In men over the age of 75, it is the main cause of death. It is IMRIC, the Men's Health Initiative of British Columbia, VGH and the University of British Columbia's main goal to develop ways to effectively treat this deadly killer.

It is from this research that they hope no more sons, fathers, husbands and grandfathers will have to suffer.
