Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer diagnosed among men who live in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that there were 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer in the US last year, accounting for over 25% of the three major cancers (rated in terms of mortality rates) that afflict males across all age groups.
While highly treatable and with near 98% long-term survivability rates when diagnosed in its earliest stages, prostate cancer resulted in about 28,000 deaths in 2015, making it the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among men in the United States, trailing only lung cancer.
We’re excited to share that for the second year in a row, Academy Bus is our official sponsor for the Summer Road Trip. Fans for the Cure has again partnered with the Hoboken NJ-based bus company to bring prostate cancer awareness and education to Minor League Baseball stadiums throughout the country.
Together with Academy Bus, we’re bringing PSA screenings and prostate cancer educational information to men in their own communities. We’ll be in your local community soon, so join us for good fun and important educational information about prostate cancer.
