September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that 1 in 6 men gets diagnosed with prostate cancer. Men over 40 need to get checked!

Men's Cancer awareness is not highlighted enough. Check out this video of ESPN anchor and Dancing with the Stars contestant, Erin Andrews talking about Prostate Cancer Awareness.

Check out this interview with Voices Of Survivors Foundation (VOSF) founder and prostate cancer survivor Lynn Lane before he started VOSF!

We already know that prostate cancer has a higher incidence and a greater mortality rate among African Americans than among any other ethnic group in the US. Historically Hispanics have had an incidence and a mortality rate closer to those seen in the Caucasian ethnic groups, but whether this will continue to be the case is going to become an important question over the next 30 years or so.
