The Blue Cure Foundation is leading the push to light the White House blue for an evening this September, for Prostate Cancer Awareness Month along with 2,500,000 American prostate cancer survivors, friends and family.
This would be a first-time honor at the White House for those who have fought, survived, and those who have 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 done for breast cancer, can raise much needed awareness for prostate cancer. We meet so many survivors and their families who want to see the same attention given to men’s and women’s health.
