What We Do

The Issue

One man dies every 20 minutes from prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is an epidemic, but it doesn't have to be.

 

Prostate cancer is one of the most preventable forms of cancer with an early diagnosis. Women are responsible for making over 80% of family medical decisions and are positioned to support the men in their lives in health care decisions and managing a prostate cancer diagnosis. We empower women and their families with the resources needed to make informed decisions.

Is the man in your life at high risk for prostate cancer? Consider these risk factors.

Race

African American and Caribbean men of African ancestry are twice as likely to die from prostate cancer than men of any other demographic.

The likelihood of a prostate cancer diagnosis increases with age.          About 6 out of 10 cases are men over the age of 65.

Age

Family History

Men with a father or brother who develop prostate cancer are twice as likely to develop prostate cancer themselves.

Men should assess the risk and benefits of prostate cancer screenings by having discussions with their doctors and should consider having these conversations starting at the following ages:

 

 

Higher Risk-

1 or more relative with prostate cancer at an early age 

-Age 50

-Age 45

Average Risk-

High Risk-

African American Men and/or 

men with fathers, son, brother diagnosed at an early age 

-Age 40

Let's make history in by working together to conquer this epidemic. Donate today.
