The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) has released Straight Talk for African-American Men and their Families, a guide aimed at educating African American men about their increased risk for prostate cancer.
The publication was produced in alliance with Charlie Wilson, famed R&B singer and recent prostate cancer survivor. The new guide includes personal thoughts from Wilson, in addition to entertainers D.L. Hughley and Snoop Dogg.
According to a PCF press release, African-American men are 1.6 times more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 2.4 times more likely to die from it than Caucasian men.
You can order a free copy of the guide online at www.pcf.org/charliewilson.
