PSA Test Reimbursement

December 31, 2020

Before COVID-19 we had announced that we would reimburse men in NWO for their PSA test, but we are telling people again because we will not be able to have our free PSA event in Thunder Bay this year. Share the information and let's see how much money we can spend on the awareness and health of men in NWO.

We believe in it so strongly that we will reimburse you for your PSA test! The PSA test is a key step in early diagnosis of prostate cancer and early detection saves lives.

  • Get Informed.
  • Talk to your health professional.
  • Get your blood work done.
  • Send us the receipt.

*Some conditions may apply. Ends December 31, 2020. Only once per year.

Celebrating Our Successes and Looking Forward to More

  • Since 1994 the death rate from prostate cancer has been cut in half
  • The survival rate for prostate cancer is nearly 100% when detected early
  • 1 in 7 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer
  • 3 of 4 men will die of prostate cancer when it is found late

We have good research and advances in treatments happening here in Thunder Bay.
Diagnosis and treatment is not the same as it was for the last generation of men.
