Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death for men in the United States. 2.5 million American men are currently living with prostate cancer, yet according to SU2C President & CEO Sung Poblete, PhD, RN, “Men are 40 percent less likely than women to have visited a healthcare provider in the past year… talking to one’s doctor about prostate cancer is critically important.”

Help us spread the message and to empower men to speak with their doctors about developing a plan for prostate cancer health. As Rashida Jones states, “We have to protect the men we cherish, so please talk to your fathers, your grandfathers, husbands, brothers and sons and make sure they speak to their doctors about this disease and how to reduce their risk.”
