The publication features an exclusive Mediaplanet interview with former Dragons’ Den star and Canadian entrepreneur W. Brett Wilson about his journey while fighting prostate cancer for the second time. Stressing the importance of building awareness and knowledge of the disease, he states, “I think there is a still a misperception that prostate cancer is an older man’s disease; nothing could be further from the truth when statistics are reviewed.” Editorial from Pete Bombaci, Country Director of Movember Canada, also shares how it’s so crucial to build awareness and take action to live a healthier life. Finally, Dr. Fred Saad, and Dr. Kim Chi discuss new therapeutic options for metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), and their commitment to improving quality of life for these patients.
