Fans for the Cure Mission Statement
FANS for the CURE saves men’s lives by working with the medical, sports and entertainment communities to promote the early detection and treatment of prostate cancer and support prostate cancer research.
Prostate cancer is highly curable when caught early, yet it is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men. We bring awareness and early screening through a unique community of medical and sports professionals so that men can stay in the game, longer.
FANS promotes awareness around prostate cancer risks, testing, and treatment through a variety of programs and events, including our signature Baseball Road Trip, an annual tour of Major League Baseball stadiums across the United States, when we connect with fans on game days to share educational information and offer on-site PSA testing with help from local healthcare partners.
We also serve as an advocacy partner for the Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project, an innovative, patient-driven research initiative on advanced and metastatic prostate cancer that is being conducted by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in coordination with the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Whether helping families get informed about prostate cancer or supporting them as they battle it, FANS for the CURE is committed to doing everything we can to provide a trusted and knowledgeable team of friends and doctors to help men and their loved ones navigate the prostate cancer journey.
Teamwork is essential to winning. FANS for the CURE brings prostate cancer awareness to 160 clubs affiliated with Major League teams, and these supporters play an integral role in the success of this ambitious awareness campaign:
The premier bus service in the Northeast, providing charter and commuter bus service.
