Write your Congressman or woman: protect funding for the PCRP

Please take just 5 minutes to write your Congressman or Congresswoman and ask him or her to continue to support and protect funding for the Department of Defense’s Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP). We need your help before May 12. Just click on the link above to use the ZERO CapWiz program.

The PCRP initiative is the single largest source of research funding targeted specifically toward high risk, high reward projects that can change the likelihood of finding a cure for prostate cancer. In just the past few of years, PCRP — and most specifically the Prostate Cancer Clinical Trials Consortium, which is a key PCRP initiative — has helped to accelerate the development of drugs like abiraterone acetate (approved by the FDA just a couple of weeks ago), MDV3100 (which might report Phase III clinical trial data by the end of this year), and several other important new drugs currently in clinical development.

The loss of funding for PCRP would be a major setback for all the efforts we have made to secure advances in the treatment fo prostate cancer over the past 5 years. Please add your voice to the chorus.
