Prostate cancer affects a majority of men in America. It affects African-American and Hispanic men
in greater numbers than Caucasian men. It is the second most common cause of death among American men,
behind heart disease. Prostate cancer is indiscriminate; it strikes men from all walks of life. There is no immunity and no vaccination.
There is no known cause, but there are numerous treatments.

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in December, 2003, and underwent laparascopic surgery in March, 2004.
That operation was a total success, and since then I have been cancer-free.

What can you do about prostate cancer?

Men: Get a check-up!
If you're over 40, you should have an annual blood test. See your doctor soon! Don't delay!
Women: Tell your man to get a check-up! It can save his life.
