PROSTATE CANCER

The most common cancer among men

HAVE YOU BEEN DIAGNOSED?

If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you will want to take the time to think about your choices and to talk with your doctor and your loved ones about the best course of action for you. Then, let us help. We provide support groups, health maintenance information and tools, educational materials, patient-to-doctor questionnaires, and advocacy tools to help you navigate your journey.

Our fundamental objective is to ensure that we all work together on priorities that will lead to:

  • A measurable decrease in the annual incidence of newly diagnosed cases of prostate cancer
  • The early diagnosis and optimal treatment of new cases of clinically significant prostate cancer
  • Meaningful support of diagnosed men and their loved ones

To take a more proactive stance against the disease, we provide forums and round tables for support groups through which men and their support network (families, partners, etc.) can increase their awareness and improve the management of their prostate cancer.

Please refer to our Calendar for upcoming partner screenings and Prostate Cancer Support Groups.
