Why join us? Since 1993, PCF has raised more than $700 million and provided funding to more than 2,000 research projects at more than 200 cancer centers and universities in 19 countries around the world. By funding leading-edge research into innovative treatments, PCF has helped reduce the U.S. death rate from prostate cancer by more than 50%. And four discoveries in prostate cancer now extend to saving lives in over 15 other forms of cancer, including breast, myeloma, colon, lung, ovarian, melanoma, bladder, and thyroid cancers.
PCF doesn’t fight only for men — we fight for entire families. Prostate cancer affects us all — we suffer together, and that’s why PCF emphasizes that we must cure this disease together, too.
We are grateful for MLB, for the players and fans, and especially for you for helping make this Home Run Challenge so memorable for the millions of American men and their families battling prostate cancer together.
Thank You. We Cure Together.
