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

Celebrity duo bring sports flavor to the conversation about a serious men's health threat

CARY, N.C., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- College basketball analyst and sports ambassador Dick Vitale and co-host of ESPN's Pardon the InterruptionMichael Wilbon have teamed up with ESPN, The V Foundation for Cancer Research(R) and Stand Up To Cancer(TM) in an effort to create a national discussion about the often ignored reality of prostate cancer and to help men start to understand their potential risk for the disease. Prostate cancer is among the biggest men's health concerns. It currently affects approximately two million American men; more than 186,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2008 alone.

The effort launches with Life: Interrupted - Stand Up To Prostate Cancer, a town hall-style program taking place Thursday, December 4, at New York City's ESPNZone. The event will tackle prostate cancer, which affects 1 out of every 6 American men.

The disease causes so much of an interruption to a man's life, and the time has come to step up the fight against it."

Vitale and Wilbon are hosting the town hall, which will follow a sports show style format and will feature various sports and prostate cancer-relevant topics. This format engages men about their health within a dialogue of sports topics. Other panelists include one the nation's leading urologists, Dr. Ste
