Description


Prostate cancer is a disease that affects one in six men. Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin malignancy in American men. It is estimated that approximately 241,740 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed in 2012 and 28,170 men will die of this potentially curable disease. African American men have the highest incidence rate for prostate cancer in the United States and are more than twice as likely as Caucasian American men to die of the disease. It can affect his sense of manhood and self-esteem, and as a result, it affects his interactions with his spouse or girlfriend, and even his fellow friends. It is an impossibility to defeat an enemy which is not fully understood. Therefore, it is a hope that the candid, first-hand accounts of stories from surviors will plant themselves in your memory and connect you in such a way that you, too, will be motivated to join in the fight.
