During a man's lifetime, one in six will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. Last year in the USA, over 240,000 new cases of prostate cancer were found. More than 2.5 million men are now living with a diagnosis of the disease.
Given these staggering figures, the Minnesota Prostate Cancer Coalition's mission is to enlighten, educate, support and advocate for men, and their caregivers, as they face the prospects of diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. MNPCC is a 501 (c) 3, tax exempt organization registered with the IRS and is certified with the Secretary of State in Minnesota. Five members of our Board of Directors are survivors of prostate cancer ourselves. As such, we are deeply committed to the accomplishment of the above-stated mission, offering our services to all, right here in Minnesota.
