About Advanced Prostate Cancer Prostate cancer affects nearly one in every six men in the United States. Among American men, prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related death, resulting in more than 33,000 deaths annually. Only lung cancer kills more men with cancer.  According to the National Cancer Institute, 15 percent of men diagnosed with prostate cancer have advanced or metastatic disease.

It's Worth the Fight"It's Worth the Fight" is a program designed to shine a light on the special needs of men with advanced prostate cancer. The educational webcast is a continuation of the program, which was launched with a live event at the Washington, D.C. VA Medical Center on October 3rd, 2011. While the program specifically targets veterans, it is relevant for all men at risk of or living with advanced prostate cancer. The campaign calls upon men with prostate cancer and advanced disease (along with the women and family members and friends in their lives) to summon their resolve to help themselves manage the disease.

The program was created by Sanofi, which discovers and makes available oncology therapies for a variety of cancers, including prostate cancer.

About Men's Health NetworkMen's Health Network (MHN) is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health prevention messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation.
