The Blue Cure Foundation is leading the push to light the White House blue for an evening this September to mark Prostate Cancer Awareness Month along with 2.5 million American prostate cancer survivors and their friends and family.
This would be a first-time honor at the White House for those who have fought, survived or lost their battle. Prostate cancer hits one of every six American men. This year, 233,000 men will be diagnosed and 29,480 will die of prostate cancer. September focuses on activities to promote prevention and detection.
Lighting the White House for one night, as has been done for breast cancer since 2008, can raise much needed awareness for prostate cancer. Survivors and their families want to see the same attention given to men’s health as to women’s health.
