Prostate Cancer Awareness


Visit: www.noshave.webs.com

 

To raise awareness of Prostate Cancer prevention and support the Flagler Palm Coast Boys Lacrosse team hosts a NO SHAVE November contest. Stay tuned for next years contest. Feel free to donate above

Florida Hospital Flagler will receive a portion of the funds raised to help promote proactive cancer awareness.  

 

The contest will run from Friday November 1st 2013 to Saturday November 30th 2013. 

Contestants will register at Woody's BBQ in Flagler Plaza on Hwy 100. on November 1st from 6-8 pm. At registration, contestants will arrive clean-shaven and a photograph will be taken of your baby-face to be compared to the final growth.

CONTEST REGISTRATION FEE is $20. Fee also includes one Woody’s BBQ sandwich on the night of registration.

Registered growers will then have 30 days to grow the best beard and/or mustache they can. 

 

On Saturday, November 30th @ 7 pm participants will come back to Woody's for the final results. Categories for winning facial hair are; Longest Overall Growth, Best Overall Style, Best Mustache, Best Beard and the "Joe Dirt" for those who's hair grows in all splotchy. There will be local beard enthusiasts as special judges to choose the winners and many prizes from local businesses.

Our non facial hair growing friends may support this cause by paying for a man in their life to compete in the contest or can triple the registration fee to "prevent" their man from competing.

 

Further donations will be appreciated. 

 

Cash or check accepted on the night of registration. If you wish to pre pay by PAYPAL or make a donation please follow the link at the top of this page.

 

What are the key statistics about prostate cancer?

Other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. The American Cancer Society’s estimates for prostate cancer in the United States for 2013 are:

  • About 238,590 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
  • About 29,720 men will die of prostate cancer

About 1 man in 6 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime.

Prostate cancer occurs mainly in older men. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men aged 65 or older, and it is rare before age 40. The average age at the time of diagnosis is about 67.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with prostate cancer do not die from it. In fact, more than 2.5 million men in the United States who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point are still alive today.

For statistics related to survival, see the section "Survival rates for prostate cancer."
