Celebrities with Prostate Cancer
Senator Bob Dole was one of the first celebrities to "go public" with his prostate cancer. The year was 1992. Since then, many other high-profile men with prostate cancer have made a similar decision. Their stories---how they were diagnosed, what treatments they selected, how they've fared, and what impact the disease has had on their lives---are told here to help others cope. Increased public awareness, which was stimulated by the efforts of these men, has led to increased federal funding and a declining mortality rate of this disease.
