Dealing with Sexual Dysfunction as a Side Effect of Prostate Cancer Treatment with Amy Pearlman, MD

Beyond Prostate Cancer: Exploring the Full Range of Urological Health

For many of us, our urologists arrived in our lives at a time of crisis and have confined their care to managing our prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. But in an engaging conversation with host Ed Randall, Dr. Michael Volpe walks us through the gamut of urinary and reproductive organ conditions a urologist might encounter in a clinical practice. Dr. Volpe also suggests that as we age, we might want to consider adding a urologist to our medical team.

Recruit a Partner, Have a Catch

Catch for the Cure is our charity’s ongoing initiative to engage and support the prostate cancer community.

Participating in Catch for the Cure is easy to do. Simply recruit a partner, schedule and choose a venue for your catch, set up a page, and you’re out of the gates. Send the page to friends and family whom you might want to support your efforts, and that’s it.

We also might recommend taking a couple of weeks to break in your glove – and your throwing arm. If your last catch coincided with your final game of American Legion Baseball eligibility, you may want to start throwing the ball around at short distances and manageable time frames.

In-Person Events

Fans for the Cure will organize and participate in about 100 in-person events in 2024, including free screenings, awareness events, educational panels, prostate cancer conferences, and Online Women’s/Caregivers’ and Men’s Support Groups.

Keep up to date with our schedule on the Events page, as well as the pages for the support groups.

Highlights for June will include the Mets/NYP free screening on June 13, an awareness/Catch event with the Cedar Rapids Kernels and Mercy Urology on June 23, and a conversation between Chris “Mad Dog” Russo and Ed Randall on June 25 in NYC.

We’re Working Every Day to Raise Awareness About Prostate Cancer and Bring PSA Screenings to Communities

Fans for the Cure is dedicated to educating men and their families about the importance of PSA screenings as part of a responsible approach to overall men’s health. Working closely with our Medical Advisory Board, we offer a comprehensive program of educational events, support groups, physician referrals, and awareness campaigns. This is in addition to the charity’s ongoing mission of providing free PSA screenings in coordination with our national healthcare partners.
