Help Us Help Men Fight Prostate Cancer
Fans for the Cure needs your support in organizing and carrying out our programs for late 2020 and 2021. The pandemic has made it necessary to take our work indoors and online, but we are heartened by the response we have received from our community. These programs include:
- Online Support Groups – This new biweekly men’s group has proven hugely popular with men on their own journey with prostate cancer. We have plans to expand the communities that we are serving with this value support network.
- STAY IN THE GAME Podcast – Doctors, community leaders, prostate cancer survivors, and former star athletes have shared their expertise and experiences about prostate cancer with our founder, Ed Randall.
- Baseball Road Trip – The charity visited 126 ballparks in the Minor Leagues in 2019 with educational and screening events. While we wait for the ballparks to reopen, we embarked on the 2020 Virtual Baseball Road Trip, a short film about Fans for the Cure’s productive thirteen-year partnership with Minor League Baseball, its teams, and its loyal fans.
- Medical Referrals – This year more than 200 men from sixteen states have called or emailed our offices in search of trusted doctors to turn to for all aspects of the prostate cancer journey – screenings, diagnoses, second/third opinions on treatment options, and post-treatment survivorship.
- Virtual Yankee Stadium Screening – In collaboration with the Yankees, the YES Network, and New York-Presbyterian/Columbia Urology, NYP has offered telemedicine appointments and, if warranted, free in-person health screenings and testing with physicians.
