Impact of the American Prostate Cancer Foundation
Improving Health the Holistic Way
Purpose of the American Prostate Cancer Foundation:
The American Prostate Cancer Foundation (APCF) will engage, educate, and enhance the quality of life for men with prostate cancer, promoting evidence-based diagnostic technologies and minimally invasive treatment.
In addition, subsidize research and education in Prostate Cancer (CaP) prevention.
Subsidize research activities, particularly in Complementary and Integrated medicine that can augment the treatment of CaP, including improvement of the quality of life (QOL) for patients during and after cancer treatments.
Enable patients with CaP to avail themselves of cost-effective state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment options.
Educate about complex entry treatments in Cancer Care such as nutritional therapy, yoga, advantages of strengthening the mind and body.
The APC Foundation has taken a multi-faceted approach to raise prostate cancer awareness and supporting patients and survivors. The organization has created a website that provides evidence-based information on diagnosis and treatment, maintained a blog for patients to share their experiences, and is considering distributing information pamphlets and brochures in medical offices. Additionally, they will organize educational conferences and seminars and help facilitate support groups for those affected by prostate cancer.
To fund their activities, the APC Foundation has received contributions from various sources, such as urologists, physicians, patients, pharmaceutical companies, and well-wishers. They have also explored partnerships with foundations and organizations that share their purpose and goals. In addition, they plan to obtain grants from National and State funding sources to support underserved and underinsured patients.
The APC Foundation will consider conducting various fundraising activities such as bike fests and 5k run/walk events and plans to sponsor more fundraising events in the future. After they publish a book, 100% of the net proceeds will be donated to the Foundation.
As the Foundation grows and becomes financially established, it will consider hiring appropriate staff to meet its needs. In addition, they plan to expand their services to more states in the USA beyond their initial focus areas of Texas, Florida, and Delaware.
The APC Foundation is dedicated to facilitating a better understanding and communication of advances in complementary medicine, yoga, and appropriate lifestyle choices for managing prostate cancer patients and survivors. Through their efforts, they hope to improve the quality of life for those affected by prostate cancer.
