The Prostate Cancer Research Program

Help Protect Federal Research Funding
Contact Your Congressman by May 12
The Federal Government is the largest funder of prostate cancer research in the world. The most crucial piece of advancing new treatments is the Prostate Cancer Research Program at the Department of Defense. IT ONLY GETS FUNDED IF CONGRESS ADDS IT EACH YEAR. That’s where you come in! 
WE NEED YOU to write Congress before May 13! The DOD research program rushes new treatments from the science bench to the patient’s bedside. In the last six months, DOD funding has lead FDA approval of XGeva and Zytiga—two treatments helping late stage prostate cancer patients.
In this environment of government cuts, we need your voice heard on Capitol Hill to ensure that the program continues to receive critical funding to advance prostate cancer research. CLICK HERE to write your Congressman today!
