Body

As part of the annual recognition of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month each September, we remember those lost to prostate cancer and offer our support to patients and their families while emphasizing the importance of prevention, detection and treatment methods.

 

Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is a method that encourages all citizens, government agencies, private businesses, non-profit organizations and other groups to join in activities that will increase awareness and prevention of prostate cancer.
