Prostate Cancer Awareness
Evander Holyfield and PCF are teaming up for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. For many men, getting checked is the first battle, but in Holyfield’s own words, “You can’t fight what you can’t see.” Take this month to talk to your fathers, brothers and sons about prostate cancer. It just might save a life. Join us in the fight for a cure.DonateWatch
Early detection is key for treating prostate cancer, especially for men who are at hereditary risk or over 40. Here are some helpful guides including questions to discuss with your doctor.
Prostate cancer is 1.6 times more common and 2.4 times more deadly among African-American men than Caucasian men.
1 in 7 men is affected by prostate cancer in his lifetime.
One man dies from prostate cancer every 19.1 minutes.
Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in U.S. men, and the 4th most common tumor diagnosed worldwide.
“PCF’s support allows us to take the risks we need in order to make breakthroughs happen sooner.”
— Alexander Wyatt, PhD, PCF Young Investigator
Senior Research Scientist, Vancouver Prostate Centre
