Let us help. We've been there and we're here to help you.
Our group is comprised of men and women, survivors, newly diagnosed, and people who want more information about Prostate Cancer and options for treating this disease.
Our meetings feature expert speakers that bring us the most current information on research, prevention, and treatment. We have been fortunate to have heard from some of the world’s leading doctors and researchers. Each talk is summarized in our monthly newsletters.
If you need to speak to someone that knows what you’re going through, you can speak with:
They know what you’re going through and can help you understand your options
The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) is the world’s leading philanthropic organization dedicated to funding life-saving prostate cancer research. Founded in 1993 by Mike Milken, PCF has been responsible for raising close to $1 billion in support of cutting-edge research by more than 2,200 research projects at 245 leading cancer centers in 28 countries around the world. Since PCF’s inception, and through its efforts, patients around the world are living longer, suffering fewer complications, and enjoying better quality of life. PCF is committed to creating a global public square for prostate cancer, in service to our mission of ending death and suffering from the disease.
As part of PCF’s educational outreach effort, we have recently developed the Prostate Cancer Patient Guide to connect patients, loved ones and care providers with critical updates, actionable information, and the latest developments from the treatment pipeline, and we would like to offer this guide as a free patient resource.
The Prostate Cancer Patient Guide, compiled with the contributions of top-tier doctors and researchers in prostate cancer, is a must-have resource for prostate cancer patients. It focuses all of the information available about contemporary prostate cancer research, treatment, and lifestyle factors into one consolidated document.
ClinicalTrials.gov is a Web-based resource that provides access to information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies.

The Prostate Cancer Summit is a dynamic and interactive forum to connect, learn, and share hope. It is designed to arm patients with knowledge about prostate cancer, provide support and tools for caregivers taking care of a loved one with prostate cancer, and engage patient advocates about advancing the field. Whether you’re a patient arming yourself with knowledge about the disease and next steps in fighting it; a caregiver looking for support and tools to take care of a loved one; or a fierce advocate engaging with leaders to speak out for the cause, the Prostate Cancer Summit is for you.
This year we've added a community "Think Tank" on Friday afternoon, February 9, 2024. The Prostate Cancer Community Think Tank will bring together patients, caregivers, clinicians and scientists to strategize around key research questions in the field. It will be an opportunity to engage with UCSD investigators and the prostate cancer community through an interactive small group discussion. The event will culminate in the establishment of priority topics for research strategy development. UCSD Moores Cancer Center is committed to partnering with patients in delivering discoveries to the clinic.
Register today and be among the first to see what's on the cutting edge of research in prostate cancer, learn the latest about living with and caring for those who have prostate cancer, and experience the difference that advocacy can make in the lives of patients and their families!
Breakfast, Lunch & Snacks will be provided.
Your support and contributions will enable us to continue our mission to empower men to be their own case manager.
