! WARNING !
Did you know that a man is 33% more likely to get prostate cancer
than a woman is to get breast cancer? It's true.

Are you a male 40-75
or over 35 and African American
or your father or brother had Prostate Cancer?
Get tested! PSA 
and DRE*

Someone you know may be affected.
One in every six men will get prostate cancer.

35% will be under the age of 65.
There will be over 2.8 million cases of prostate disease reported in 20139.
For over 241,000 men, it will be prostate cancer.
Over 32,000 will die because
they didn't get an examination or didn't act soon enough.
Don't let it be said, "He was too afraid or embarrassed to get tested."
We cannot rest until we win the battle against Prostate Cancer.

Take the Risk Factor Test
Four Important Things to Remember before Getting Tested

1. Be sure that you're rested.
2. No sexual activity for 72 hours before the test.
3. Got a cold? Put it on hold.
4. Either have your PSA test before the DRE or delay taking a

PSA test for 48 hours AFTER you have had your DRE test.

* If you get a reading between zero and 1, get tested again in five year.
If the reading is between 1 and 2, get tested again in two years.
If the reading is between 2-4, get tested every year.
If the reading is over 4, consider additional tests like
PSA free, AMAS, ultrasound, x-rays, and more blood t
ests, then, maybe a biopsy. And, take this health opportunity to learn every thing you can about
prostate cancer! Call the PCA Coalition hotline with questions about prostate cancer:

VolunteerMatch

Not only the Federal Government, but many corporations have reduced their charitable contributions in recent years. This means reduced services and in many cases, the elimination of services. Many men's services, like this one, are run out of our homes. We foot the bill because of our commitment to men, communities, families, relationships, etc. To keep going, and in many cases just to survive, volunteers are needed. You can make a difference. If you have a few minutes, hours, days, one-time or over a longer period of time, there is a place that can use you.

We are proud to be part of VolunteerMatch, a national non-profit system that has listings for volunteers all over the country. You pick what suits you best. (They don't have a category for "men" yet, and we're working on them.) Below, you can search for opportunities that you can do from home, like the opportunities we have. And they also list opportunities within a mile of your zip code, 6 miles, 20 miles, etc. What have you done lately?  Make a difference. It's never to late to start!
