September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

Presidential Proclamation — National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, 2012

On the 31st of August 2012 a proclamation was signed by President Barak Obama proclaiming September as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. 

Many are not aware, but prostate cancer is among the most common cancers for men living in the United States.  Despite the progress we have made with the disease, prostate cancer continues to take a devastating toll on thousands of lives every year.

Today, we join in the memory of those who have loss their lives to this disease.  In addition, we call on you to join in the health and welfare of the men in your life – fathers, brothers, uncles, friends – by encouraging them to know the signs and get prostate exams.  As we know with any disease, early detection is the key.

For more information on the warning signs of this disease, we encourage you to visit  www.Cancer.gov.
