“The ARIZONA PROSTATE CANCER COALITION is an inclusive statewide organization promoting awareness, education, early detection, effective treatment, and support for prostate cancer patients, their families and caregivers.”
The Arizona Prostate Cancer Coalition (AzPCC) was organized in late 2019. The organization, which is currently under development, consists of an Executive Committee, a Board of Directors and a Medical Advisory Board.
It is entirely volunteer based, with volunteers for which Cancer, and in particular Prostate Cancer, has affected their lives. Our goal is to form an organization that acts as a unifying force within Arizona for information, education, assistance and advocacy for all aspects of Prostate Cancer.
Members of the Coalition will include prostate cancer warriors, medical professionals, oncology and urology centers, charitable cancer organizations, cancer advocacy partners, social workers, and others.
