Welcome to the Washington State Prostate Cancer Coalition (WSPCC)
Prostate cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer death in men, following lung cancer. A man is being diagnosed with prostate cancer every 3 minutes, and a man dies from the disease every 20 minutes. The risk for developing prostate cancer doubles if a man's father or brother has been diagnosed with the disease. The WSPCC was formed in June of 2002 to address the need for enhanced awareness and advocacy of prostate cancer in Washington State and to bring together prostate cancer survivors, families, healthcare providers and employer groups. We want to serve as the communications hub for Washington State Prostate Cancer Stakeholders. Please browse our new website and find Washington State Prostate Cancer Support Groups and their contact information. Also review many helpful articles and resources about Prostate Cancer. You can help by becoming a volunteer or making a contribution to support WSPCC.
Working together, we will make a difference.
