Share Your Prostate Cancer Story

As a wife, partner, daughter or family member of someone who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer you have a unique perspective and story to share. With a disease like prostate cancer the treatment options are numerous and the outcomes, side effects, and learnings are diverse. A prostate cancer diagnosis can create a lasting impact on a family or relationship.

Do you want to share your story with the world? Ladies, tell us about your loved one’s journey with prostate cancer and how it has impacted you and your family.  Men, if you’ve had prostate cancer or if a loved one or friend has we would love to hear your story too.

We will use the submitted videos to compile an awareness video or may use your video as a stand alone to share with others as inspiration on our YouTube channel and the WAPC website.
