Awareness Month 2019: Five Ways to Connect
It's too often assumed that prostate cancer patients don't need help and support. Our community members show that support every awareness month and every day of the year. For Prostate Cancer Awareness Month 2019, we're highlighting the stories of folks living with and after prostate cancer. We're also featuring ways to connect with others.
Five ways to connect

Through the 30th of September, enter for a chance to win a prostate cancer awareness package including a pair of books covering a range of prostate cancer experiences, original artwork from Doug Sparling's Cancer As Art series, and “Warrior” stickers. Extra entries are offered for submitting your prostate cancer story.
2. Join the discussion

4. Share a story
Sharing a story on ProstateCancer.net is a great way to connect with others and let folks know they're not alone. We often share submitted stories to the Facebook community, which means your voice reaches even farther. You can submit a story by clicking here.
5. Talk to someone about prostate cancer
We may be online only, but sharing your story in person can have an even bigger impact. It puts a face to prostate cancer, and that's what this month is all about. Start conversations with your family, friends, and coworkers. Let them know that this is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month!
