Prostate Aware

Benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation

September 1-30, 2014

OUR GOAL: $5,000.00

Total Amount Raised: $3,676.86

One in six Albertan men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. More than 2,700 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in Alberta this year alone. Localized prostate cancer can be treated effectively with chemotherapy and surgery.  What can be concerning is when the cancer spreads from the prostate to other areas in the body.

What if you could take a simple blood test to know whether or not your cancer will spread?

The recent work being done by Dr. Lewis supported by you, Alberta Cancer Foundation donors, has allowed his team to study a specific biomarker in patients that indicates whether their cancer will metastasize – or spread throughout their body.  Prostate Aware is supporting this type of transformational research so that the development of a simple blood test can tell doctors if their patient has a cancer that is likely to spread.

Prostate Aware is supporting leading-edge prostate cancer research right here at home in Alberta. All money raised stays in Alberta, to benefit Albertans and their families facing cancer.
