Prostate Cancer Education & Awareness

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer
in men, and second only to lung cancer in the number of cancer deaths.
1 in 6 men are affected.

In the fall of 2009 the NJC foundation adopted a Prostate CancerEducationand Awareness program.  the objective of this program is to develop, promote and support Prostate Cancer education, treatment and research programs in the Kansas City area and national programs endeavors, such as the Prostate Cancer foundation.

Fundraising and educational events include: the annual Father's Day 5k to Fight Prostate Cancer, and the Bloch Cancer Survivors Rally held in July, at the Blch Park near the Country Club Plaza.  Other projects that we will support are the Prostate Challenge and the flhw Prostate Cancer Golf Tournament.
