National Campaign Shows Veterans Why "It's Worth the Fight" Against Advanced Prostate Cancer
Date:11/11/2011

's Worth the Fight" webcast provides information about advanced prostate cancer, its treatment and available support and resources, while emphasizing the importance of following the "three C's":

  • Communicate as your prostate cancer advances:
  • You're not alone – there are steps you can take to cope with advanced prostate cancer.
  • Be proactive and talk to your family. Use your family as a resource to educate yourself about the disease and your options.
  • Consult a team of health professionals:
  • Working with a multidisciplinary team (MDT) of experts – including your urologist, medical oncologist, radiation oncologist and other healthcare professionals – you can help improve treatment outcomes.
  • Consider all your options:
  • There are several treatment options available to you, even if your prostate cancer is in the advanced stages, and it's important to consider them all with your MDT to determine what's right for you.

  • "In my practice I have seen many men with advanced prostate cancer who don't realize there are more options for them. In fact, there have been advances in several therapeutic areas for the treatment of advanced disease, including chemotherapy," said Nancy A. Dawson, MD, the William M. Scholl Professor of Medicine and Oncology and director of Genito-Urinary Medical Oncology at the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. "That's why it's critical for men not to give up the fight and to consider all their treatment options with their oncologist, urologist and other important members of their healthcare team."

    "Sanofi US created this educational initiative as part of the company's ongoing commitment to fighting advanced prostate cancer," said Charles Hugh-Jones, M.D., Vice President, Head of Medical Affairs Oncology, Sanofi North America. "Through 'It's Worth the Fight,' our goal is to help provide veterans and men in general with the information
