ESPN'S Dick Vitale and Michael Wilbon Stand Up in the Fight Against Prostate Cancer
Date:12/4/2008

s, Dr. Steven Kaplan; Nick Valvano of The V Foundation; Dr. Jonathan Simons of the Prostate Cancer Foundation; Dr. Jean Bonhomme of the Men's Health Network as well as Ted Danson, DL Hughley and Joe Theismann.

"If the first time you think about prostate cancer is when you're diagnosed, it might be too late. Men over the age of 40, especially those with other risk factors, should be proactive in managing their prostate health," said Kaplan, M.D., F.A.C.S., Vice Chairman of the Department of Urology at Columbia University. "The PSA, which is a simple blood test, is an excellent tool to help manage your risk of prostate health. New studies now point to higher-than-average PSAs as correlating with a higher likelihood of being diagnosed with prostate cancer in the future. One marker is 1.5 or higher in men over the age of 50. This is significant because we now potentially have a new way to closely monitor men who may be at increased risk for developing prostate cancer."

Dr. Kaplan, among the other panelists, will paint the picture of prostate cancer in America, showing why prostate cancer is such an interruption in men's lives. Afterall, every 2.5 minutes, a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer. And, every 19 minutes, a man dies from it.

"Dick and I wish that every guy out there could hear the message we are trying to spread," commented Wilbon. "The good news is that the show will be available as a podcast on www.JimmyV.org ."

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) proudly provided funding and support for the 'Life: Interrupted' initiative. GSK is closing in on cancer from all sides with a new generation of patient-focused cancer treatments in prevention, supportive care, chemotherapy and targeted therapies. Just one example of this commitment: GSK has invested significant resources in prostate cancer prevention res
