Prostate Cancer Canada Network Calgary (PCCN Calgary)

Dark Side is partnering with PCCN Calgary to promote men’s health. The Dark Side Top Fuel Dragster, driven by David Fedorowich, will carry the PCCN Calgary logo throughout the 2013 Car Show/Racing Season.

PCCN Calgary's Mission Statement:
Our objective is to assist and support patients, families and friends by informing, empathizing and reassuring men on their journey with prostate cancer. By sharing our experiences with our own cancer we lift our spirits and strengthen our resolve to fight for quality of life and a cure.

PCCN Calgary does not give medical advice, recommend treatment modalities, medications or physicians, nor should anyone attending our meetings, unless he or she is a health care professional.

We do not endorse any product, treatment or therapy. Some controversial opinions may be presented here. A qualified healthcare professional should be consulted before making medical decisions.

It is our firm belief that you are entitled to know all you can about this disease and be thus informed, and make your own educated decisions regarding treatment and care.

Professional Drag racing reaches the exact demographic that must hear this message. Prostate cancer is a very serious issue for all men, as one out of every seven men during their lifetime will be diagnosed with some form of prostate cancer. Early detection is as simple as a blood test during a routine check up with your primary care physician or urologist. In 2013, 26,500 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed. The key for these men is detecting the disease in its early stages when treatment has a 95% success rate.

Drag Racing enthusiats will have the opportunity to see the Dark Side/PCCN Calgary Top Fuel Dragster up close and personal at Calgary and area Show & Shines and racing events throughout the summer. We hope you will stop by and say hi!
