The conference program was developed for patients dealing with advanced prostate cancer. We are distributing a DVD with video segments of key talks by Drs. Scholz, Pinski, Gross and Lam for this audience. Since quantities are limited, we encourage you to share this DVD with other men you know who may be struggling with advanced prostate cancer, your doctors, or your local support group.

We offer the DVD for free, since we don’t want men who might benefit from the information to avoid requesting it simply because of cost. As you might imagine, producing meetings such as this and a DVD for free distribution is very expensive. If you would like to help defer our cost, so that we can continue to offer such resources, please consider a generous donation to the PCRI today. Click here to donate.

Order a free copy for you or a loved one by calling PCRI at
