1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Chances are you might know and love someone who has had or will get a prostate cancer diagnosis. Prostate cancer is the SECOND leading cause of cancer death among men. I had no idea.

So, why are we talking to you, the “prostateless”, about this cancer?

If you’re anything like me, you’re the one making everyone’s doctors appointments, doing the late night WebMD Google searches, taking care of your kids, your husband and even harassing your parents about their health. True confession? I had to BET my dad $500 that he needed knee replacements. I’m the only one who got him to the doctor. But I lost . . . he actually needed BOTH of his HIPS replaced! But a good daughter puts it all on the line right? (We called the bet a draw btw . . .)

Turns out the “best long-term care insurance in our country is a conscientious daughter” proved by a recent healthcare study by a bunch of Stanford University Fellows (more here). You’re welcome dad!

So What If I Know Someone Who Gets Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer?

Here’s the cool thing. The Prolaris Test is a prostate cancer test that provides a new measure of the aggressiveness of an individual’s prostate cancer. Getting a “Prolaris Score” will give both the patient and the physician additional information about the cancer that no other test can. That impacts the kind of treatment that person you love will get as well as the side effects and outcomes. It’s such valuable information to have.  So if you know someone with a recent diagnosis point them to Prolaris.com. They can ask their doctor about it and odds are their insurance covers it.

Why are we talking about prostate cancer?

Over 240,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 1 in 6 American men will receive a diagnosis of prostate cancer in their lifetime and more than 2.5 million men in the United States count themselves as prostate cancer survivors. Prolaris wants more survivors and better treatment.

Prolaris is a genetic test for prostate cancer that combines traditional risk factors with a molecular assessment of the aggressiveness of an individual patient’s cancer. Prolaris provides unique information about a patient’s cancer and can help doctors and patients make the most informed treatment decisions.

We know that women are at the helm of their families health and we want to provide a little more incentive for families to take the time to learn more about prostate cancer and the treatment options.

How to Enter

Knowledge is power and we want to spread some around. Sign you and your loved one up for a series of 3 emails that will empower you with what you need to know about prostate cancer.

Each unique email address submitted is considered an entry and eligible to win.
