The Southwest Prostate Cancer Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded in October, 1999 by volunteers and volunteer survivors who are dedicated to make prostate cancer a family issue in Arizona by raising public awareness. Southwest Prostate Cancer Foundation holds monthly meetings with presentations by guest experts on various topics about prostate cancer. Join us at one of these meetings and come away with a better understanding of who we are, and why we are so committed to bringing down the number of deaths caused by this disease. Call 602-547-3806 for a meeting schedule.
Our Mission Is to improve public awareness to the risk of prostate cancer in Arizona and to promote early detection to avoid an advanced stage diagnosis. Many deaths can be avoided if the cancer is detected early. The simplest way to do this is by having your doctor check you with a prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test and a digital rectal examination (DRE).
