Before he created The Active Surveillor.com, Howard Wolinsky was a medical writer for the Chicago Sun-Times for nearly thirty years and a regular contributor to MedPage Today and Medscape. When he was diagnosed with Gleason 6 (now also called GG1) prostate he said no thanks as he was being rushed to take on a radical treatment option. Thirteen years down the road from his cancer diagnosis he is one of the country’s most passionate advocates for active surveillance as a first (and possibly forever) step to indolent/favorable diagnoses of prostate cancer.
This program is an online way for Fans for the Cure 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., February 20th at 8 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.
