 "What's the Deal with the PSA Test?"

The PCRI has exciting news!
They have been blessed with a $500,000 matching gift program that matches dollar for dollar all donations designated to their “Imaging Awareness Campaign.”
 To make a donation, click here.

This campaign aims to bring awareness to the fact that a million men every year undergo random needle biopsy of the prostate when imaging with noninvasive multi-parametric MRI is just as accurate. We need to spread this news! A short video on their website, www.pcri.orgexplains how millions of men who undergo PSA screening can be saved from invasive and unnecessary 12-core random needle biopsies. 

This January, PCRI will have completed their 18th year of service to patients with prostate cancer. While it’s good to see how treatments have improved over the years, it’s sad that treatment selection remains industry driven. Rather than men getting treatment that is personalized to their individual need, they too often are herded into “standard industry fare.” 

The PCRI provides non-biased educational resources for all stages of disease: 

  • Trained Helpline facilitators are only a phone call away.
  • The Blue Community and the PCRI website provides excellent resources.
  • The SHADES of Blue help connect men with information applicable to their specific situation.  
  • The annual Prostate Cancer Conference enables patients to converse with world renowned experts.
  • Their free quarterly newsletter "Insightskeeps everyone informed and connected with the latest developments throughout the year. 

State-of-the-art information is a Godsend for men and their families who need answers.

The PCRI’s programs and initiatives are 100% funded through charitable donations. Together with this new matching gift program your donation will make an even bigger difference. Your generous contribution will give them the support they need to continue to provide these services to men worldwide.  To make a donation, click here.

Thank you for your consideration; it is greatly appreciated!
