PCFA Ambassador Program


About PCFA Ambassador Program

The PCFA Ambassador Program’s objective is to raise community awareness of prostate cancer and to provide resources for individuals to learn more.
Ambassador presentations are delivered by trained people, many of whom have firsthand experience of prostate cancer.  Ambassadors may have or had prostate cancer, or other prostate diseases. Ambassadors may be the carer/partner of someone with prostate cancer or be a supporter of PCFA without direct experience with prostate cancer.
