Doing the grim math on prostate cancer

Wayne and Barb Harrigan dropped by our studio to talk about the prostate cancer support group they're organizing in Moncton. Wayne, a former math teacher at Harrison Trimble High School, learned two years ago he was among the one-in-seven men in Canada who develop prostate cancer. More than 25,000 are diagnosed with the disease each year and more than 4,000 will die. Thatfirst meeting of the prostate cancer support group will be November 2nd at 7 pm at the YMCA in Moncton. Guest speaker is urologist Dr. Neil Dwyer. This meeting is open to prostate cancer survivors, their spouses/partners and anyone interested in learning more about this disease.
