National Prostate Cancer Awareness

Sep 27, 2017

Share:

Who do you know who has been diagnosed, was treated and is dealing with their adjustments to healing?  Perhaps someone who died from Prostate cancer? 

As you read further, visualize that person.  And then think about the Fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, partners, friends, even the community who are affected by the devastation of the accompanying psychological side effects.

The Problem

One in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. In 2017 we will have an estimated 161,360 new cases of prostate cancer. 10-15% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer have fast growing life threatening tumors.  In the United States 2.9M men have been diagnosed and living with prostate cancer.  One man in thirty-nine will die of prostate cancer.

Education regarding prostate cancer and early detection strategies is critical to saving lives and preserving our families.  As is the message of hope and availability of emotional healing systems from the ravaging side effects of Prostate cancer.

The Local Solution

Living Well 60 Plus, seeks a confirmation by the City of Healdsburg to issue a Proclamation backing The National Prostate Cancer Awareness month.  Virgil Beasley, Psy.D. will request respected cities with Sonoma County to also, issue proclamation backing National Prostate Cancer Awareness.

Living Well 60 Plus, a Nonprofit 501(c) 3 Corporation, Fed. Tax ID 51-0181090. and it's special After Prostate Cancer project is producing this fundraising concert event.  All proceeds benefit prostate cancer awareness and support programs for survivors, partners, family and loved ones.

We are thrilled to bring to the Raven Theater and our community on October 28, 2017 the incredible concert performance CASH & KING - STEVEN KENT.
