American Prostate Cancer Foundation (APCF) was established with the vision that minimally invasive technologies could improve the quality of life for patients. We expect to accomplish this by providing patients, especially those in financial need, access to state of the art technologies to diagnose and treat prostate cancer. This includes a provision of subsidies to organizations that support patient access to diagnostic services and treatment for prostate cancer, especially for indigent or uninsured patient.
Our Mission includes education to increase awareness of prostate cancer and the various diagnostic and treatment options available with an emphasis on minimally invasive techniques (MIT) to preserve the quality of life.
APCF health care professionals expect to educate the public to raise awareness and encourage implementation of Yoga/Ayurveda/Nutritional therapies as integrated approaches for combating cancer. Yoga Practitioners will be invited to develop individualized treatments for their clients. These plans include lifestyle recommendations such as exercise, diet, herbs, mindfulness and self-awareness techniques to improve the quality of life.
Outcomes and data may be shared with nonprofit collaborators and hospitals regarding benefits to the public for advancing the use of MIT. APC Foundation goals include an instrumental role in connecting, convening and influencing stakeholders, and foster collaboration among them.
Since inception, APCF has served as a catalyst, driving growth and advancing the field of focused ultrasound and similar technologies. We are now in a position to prioritize activities to address critical bottlenecks and leverage resources to provide value and measurable impact.
APCF expects to increase the efficiency and productivity of our organization with the goal of becoming a transformative organization for Men’s Health. In the coming years, the formula for success will continue to hinge on the Foundation’s reputation as a trusted, independent and unbiased third-party. We believe our highly skilled team, our Board, Council, members, and donors, will serve as an inspiring
