About the Prostate Cancer Education Council
The Prostate Cancer Education Council (PCEC) was founded in 1988 and coordinates the national Prostate Cancer Awareness Week (PCAW) program, Sept. 17 -- 22, 2007. PCAW was created by the PCEC as a means to offer free or low-cost prostate cancer screenings across the nation (12 in Colorado, more than 500 nationwide). PCEC and the PCAW event strive to educate men and the women in their lives about the prevalence of prostate cancer, the importance of early detection and the available treatment options. As one of the oldest and largest organized screening efforts in the nation, PCAW has helped millions of men receive potentially life-saving screenings in addition to influencing additional research dollars to be earmarked for prostate cancer.
