Every family knows: a cancer diagnosis is rough. But the people around us – the ones who drive us to treatment, shop for the few foods we’re willing to eat, put up with us when we just feel mad at the world – they give us the hope and strength that we need to get through.
This Valentine’s season let’s give back some love.
This contest has ended, but we would still love to hear from you!
“I am honored to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation with their TRUE LOVE contest honoring caregivers for the month of February. Their selflessness and hard work is so admirable and I wanted to give love and recognition to all of these unsung heroes over this Valentine’s season.”
– Kristen Bell
"I am grateful to my lovely wife…”
"I have my wife and my family, but more..."
"Healthy, handsome, fit, Scott wasn't supposed to get cancer..."
"Believe it or not, it was Nancy Reagan who predicted I might one day face cancer."
"I can't say enough good things about my doctors..."
“I knew Katie was a strong woman…”
About the TRUE campaign
TRUE celebrates and honors caregivers of prostate cancer patients — spouses, partners, nurses, doctors, siblings, children, friends. In the U.S. every 3.2 minutes a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer and there are currently 3 million men in the U.S. battling the disease. The most fortunate among us often have someone who has made a special commitment or gone the extra mile towards supporting them through the battle. That support can make all the difference in the world to someone with a cancer diagnosis. From finding the right treatment, to recovery or palliative care, compassionate care is a key factor in all aspects of care.
Award winning actress Kristen Bell is helping to get the word out about the TRUE campaign and she’s also curating a special gift for the winner of the most inspirational caregiver story submitted to the campaign. Kristen’s mother is a nurse and her father-in-law is battling prostate cancer so she understands first-hand the value of caregivers as part of the cancer care support system.
