These one-day car shows hosted in Brampton, Ontario are intended to increase awareness of Prostate Cancer. All staff are unpaid volunteers; most are prostate cancer survivors involved with our support group, Prostate Cancer Support Brampton.
Thank you to all who have attended our past shows!
If you would like to volunteer, we would so appreciate your time. Please contact us to inquire about volunteer opportunities.
RAISING PROSTATE CANCER AWARENESS SINCE 2007
Cruisin' For A Cure Canada is a car show with a goal to raise awareness about prostate cancer, which is as serious for men as breast cancer is for women.
Yet, OHIP STILL forces most men in Ontario to pay for their PSA blood tests except:
(a) at the discretion of their family doctor or
(b) once they have already been diagnosed with prostate cancer!
This year, Cruisin' for a Cure Canada will issue coupons to cover the cost of a standard PSA test, up to $40, to the first 300 men 40 years of age or older who apply at the show. (Sadly, the cost of operating an onsite clinic has roughly doubled since 2019 and a College of Physicians and Surgeons regulation means that PSA tests must be requisitioned by each man's doctor.)
This simple test is not perfect, but it is a vital first step in the process of detecting Prostate Cancer. Learn more about the PSA test here.
