National Man Day - June 15, 2011

Be a Man to End Prostate Cancer


Being a man also means being healthy and knowing your risks about prostate cancer. So while you are chopping wood, hosting a poker night or going four-wheeling, register your activity to raise funds for prostate cancer early detection programs and research for a cure.

One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes! Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of male cancer death, killing a man every 18 minutes. Yet, there is hope: 99 percent survive when it's caught early.

Proceeds raised by National Man Day activities will support ZERO — The Project to End Prostate Cancer and its mission to end prostate cancer through awareness, outreach, advocacy and research. ZERO operates the Drive Against Prostate Cancer—the only national mobile testing program for the disease. Since the Drive began in 2002, ZERO has tested more than 110,000 men and saved an estimated 11,000 lives through early detection. ZERO has also worked to infuse more than $2 billion of new federal funding for prostate cancer research to find a cure.
