Mission Statement

PROGRESS FOR PROSTATE is a Colorado based non-profit organization whose mission is to raise funds for battling diseases of the prostate, through research and development of better diagnostic, treatment, and support programs.

Description

Contrary to popular belief, prostate cancer is not just an "old man's" issue. It's an "every man" issue. Nearly everyone knows someone whose life has been changed by a diagnosis of prostate cancer: themselves, family member, friend,etc. Fortunately, the solution is right at our fingertips.

Progress for Prostate, A Colorado Solution™, is a non-profit organization that was formed for three primary reasons:

  1. Colorado does not receive sufficient financial support either from the Federal government or through the National Prostate Cancer Foundation to fund the necessary research, affordable treatment and educational programs for the people of Colorado.
  2. Some of the world's leading doctors in prostate cancer research and their clinical support staff are here in Colorado.
  3. Our locally controlled non-profit organization and community outreach campaign will ensure funds raised for prostate cancer research and treatment stay in Colorado.

Now, important facts that will help you be part of the solution:

FACT: NEARLY A QUARTER OF A MILLION American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009. That's 1 in 6 men; 1 in 3 if you're African American or have a family history of prostate cancer.

FACT: Some of the WORLD'S leading DOCTORS in Prostate Cancer Research are right HERE in Colorado.

FACT: The federal government's funding for Colorado's prostate cancer research and education is dwindling.

FACT: The national cancer research foundations that Coloradans so generously support give back only a small percentage to the programs and people of Colorado.

FACT: Progress for Prostate is a Colorado non-profit that is raising the necessary funding for the diagnosis, research and treatment of prostate cancer right here in Colorado.

FACT: Every dollar Progress for Prostate raises for prostate cancer research and education stays in Colorado.

FACT: You can make a difference - please don't wait a single moment - help us with our Colorado Solution to Prostate Cancer Today.
