"Since President Richard M. Nixon declared the 'War on Cancer' in 1971, more than 1 million men have died from prostate cancer and there are over 2 million men living with prostate cancer today. Nearly 34,000 men will die each year from this disease."
Prostate cancer is treatable, but only if it is detected early, before it has spread. The Prostate Cancer Awareness Project recommends men begin annual testing at age 35.
The Prostate Cancer Awareness Project (PCAP) is a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit entity, FEIN 20-4509127. Robert Hess, founder, formed the PCAP as a result of his accidental prostate cancer diagnosis in 2003. The PCAP's focus is on early disease detection and prevention.
