Lifestyle Management Program in Alberta – TrueNTH

The TrueNTH (pronounced True North) Lifestyle Management (LM) Program is part of the Global TrueNTH network funded by Movember (in partnership with Prostate Cancer Canada nationally). TrueNTH LM aims to improve the survivorship experience for men living with prostate cancer through physical activity, nutrition, and stress-reduction resources (programs and educational materials).

TrueNTH LM includes a free 12-week physical activity and yoga program with classes designed specifically to address the health and treatment related concerns for men living with prostate cancer. Men can also access a comprehensive online portal with tools, education, and home-based programming for help with staying active, reducing stress, and maintaining a proper diet.

In Calgary, TrueNTH LM has partnered with City of Calgary Recreation to offer programs at four different locations throughout the city. Registration is ongoing for men. In Edmonton, the Cancer Rehabilitation Clinic at the University of Alberta will be hosting a TrueNTH LM program starting in January 2016. Future programs will be announced as they become available. Men living in rural Alberta are able to join an online-based program at lifestyle.truenth.ca

All men who have been previously diagnosed with prostate cancer regardless of when they were diagnosed or what treatment they received can join the TrueNTH LM online portal or join a community program. Each person will undergo an initial health screening to ensure physical activity is safe.

Inspiring support for prostate cancer research at the 2015 CCI Golf Classic

Members of the APCaRI team felt very fortunate yesterday to participate in the Alberta Cancer Foundation’s 27th Annual Cross Cancer Institute Golf Classic – a wonderful event that has raised more than $10 million to pioneer revolutionary projects in support of patients at Alberta’s own Cross Cancer Institute and beyond. And the event yesterday was truly inspiring for me and our team! Thanks to the kindness and overwhelming generosity of the many sponsors and attendees, and the spectacular efforts of MC and auctioneer Danny Hooper, more than $1.1M was raised to support cutting edge research into cancer metastasis and the clinical study of our new blood and urine tests for aggressive prostate cancer.

Heartfelt thanks to the amazing volunteers, the organizing committee, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, and all of the participants and donors who attended the event!
