This program is our way to support men facing a prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment, or recovery. The group meets every other Thursday evening. Our next meeting is Thur., Jun. 17 at 7 PM ET.
As head athletic trainer of the Seattle Mariners, Rick Griffin worked nearly 6,000 regular season games and 34 postseason games. A naturally healthy guy who never missed a day of work for sickness, Rick was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer twice – as his wife underwent treatment for breast cancer. Rick is now a prostate cancer advocate for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.
This new program is an online way for Fans for the Cure to begin to support women who journey with men dealing with a prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment, or recovery. This gathering is free and open to all women.
Our next meeting is Tues., Jul. 13 at 7 PM ET.
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.

We've started a new PROGRAM
It is with great excitement we have launched our Online Men’s Support Group program. This new effort is being rolled out in light of COVID-19.
Our first online meeting of this group is TOMORROW, Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 7 PM ET.
On this #GivingTuesday during these difficult times, your support of what we do is more important than ever. We need your help in adapting our prostate cancer awareness and educational programs to social distancing guidelines and migrating to online platforms.
