What's the need?
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed male cancer and is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men.
We urgently need to develop new and effective treatments for advanced prostate cancer, and to make sure that all patients have the information they need to make the right choices for them.
Globally, the funding of medical research into improved treatments has been minimal. Federal funding for prostate cancer research has accounted for, on average, only five percent of our nation’s annual cancer research budget. However, prostate cancer accounts for 19 percent of all cancer cases and eight percent of cancer deaths in men.
This is where PCR comes in. We are here to invest in the science, research and medical breakthroughs of the future, and to empower patients and their families to access the right information, have the right conversations, and get the best treatment for them.
