Join UC San Diego as they host their firs-ever prostate cancer research fundraiser featuring Mike Haynes and Charlie Joiner of NFL Hall of Fame glory and prostate cancer survivors on March 21st. Sponsored by the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, all proceeds from the event will benefit prostate cancer research at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.
Prostate cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer among men in the United States. UC San Diego researchers are investigating every aspect of prostate cancer in order to more effectively address the whole spectrum of the disease, starting with early detection and more readily available knowledge. “So few men know about this disease—it’s a little scary,” said Haynes. “That is why Dr. Kane’s and UC San Diego’s commitment to early detection is so important. We’re committed to raising awareness because prostate cancer, if caught early, is treatable.”
Don’t miss the opportunity to hang out with NFL champions and raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. Tickets are $250 per person. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the website or call (858) 534-4289.
