The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) was founded in 1993 to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer. Through its unique model for soliciting and selecting promising research programs and rapid deployment of resources, the PCF has funded more than 1,500 programs at nearly 200 research centers in 20 countries around the world.
As the world’s leading philanthropic organization for funding prostate-cancer research, the PCF is now a foundation without borders. Its advocacy for increased government and private support of prostate cancer programs has helped build a global research enterprise of nearly $10 billion.
In 2007, 30 percent fewer men in the U.S. died from prostate cancer compared to what was once projected. The PCF is a force of HOPE for more than 16 million men and their families around the world who are currently facing the disease.
We have turned the corner. We will not give up. An end to death and suffering from prostate cancer is in sight. Explore the 15 years of prostate cancer research progress in our most recent Annual Report.more » « less
