Prostate Net Announces: Release of La Prostata Red - The Prostate Net En Espanol

HACKENSACK, N.J., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Virgil H. Simons, Founder and President of The Prostate Net announced the organization's latest major initiative in the fight against prostate cancer. The production and release of a culturally-neutral Website - that seeks to deliver and discuss contemporary information and issues relative to the disease for Latino/Hispanic consumers, patients, caregivers and professionals worldwide. "We believe a specific awareness and educational effort, targeted to this emerging and expanding audience will only serve to promote the best standard of care," said Simons. "This initiative will provide access to information for both patients and professionals, not normally readily available in Spanish, based on leading edge research and clinical practice."

Prostate Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of male cancer death globally and the most commonly diagnosed cancer in American men. Latino/Hispanic men in the United States represent the third-largest incidence group currently. As the baby boom generation matures, more and more men will be diagnosed with the disease. While there has been some progress in disease mortality reduction over the past decade, there still remains significant disease specific issues relative to risk awareness, advanced stage disease management, treatment options, lifestyle modification and diet, as well as the reduction and/or elimination of pain and suffering attendant to a diagnosis of prostate cancer. The Website and the correlative printed materials will address these issues.

Thousands of men have learned about, and been screened for, prostate cancer through The Prostate Net's public education initiatives. Additionally, these programs foster relationships between public health departments, medical center outreach teams, cancer education researchers and the public.

About The Prostate Net

Virgil H. Simons founded the Prostate Net in 1996 as a result of his own encounter with prostate cancer. When he was diagnosed, there was little to no readily accessible information to help prostate cancer patients and their families make informed treatment decisions.

Today, men diagnosed with prostate cancer can readily access The Prostate Net's website to find information empowering them to make treatment decisions that ensure a desirable quality of life. Recognizing that people absorb information differently, The Prostate Net also features PodCasts, Web Casts and an opt-in cell cast network as well as a Toll-Free "Hotline" for those seeking one-to-one support. The website also is an educational vehicle for the public to learn about prostate cancer in general. The Prostate Net's newsletter, "In The Know," may be viewed on the website, but is available through free subscription as well as also distributed in conjunction with our other public education initiatives.

The job of raising public awareness about prostate cancer risks is far from complete. The Prostate Net seeks to expand its current initiatives through effective partnerships in disease education, community intervention and population research studies. This site has been designed to provide you with some of those tools and guidance that can be employed on a local basis to address particular issues for your community or organization.
