Prostate cancer strikes 1 in 6 American men and has become more common than even breast cancer, which affects 1 in 8 women. However, public awareness and research funding are lagging behind and men do not currently have reliable diagnostic tools similar to life-saving mammograms. The impact is staggering: an American man dies every 16 minutes. The goal of “The Manogram Project” is to advance early detection of prostate cancer which is critical for saving lives.
