CURE Media Group, the nation’s leading digital and print media enterprise focused on cancer patients, today welcomes Prostate Cancer International and Cancer CAREpoint as members of the Advocacy Spotlight Partnership program dedicated to the fight against cancer.
“Prostate Cancer International and Cancer CAREpoint are energetic and engaged advocates for their communities. Together we can provide patients, families and caregivers the kind of reliable and current information they need on a wide range of services and treatment options,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president of Michael J. Hennessy Associates, Inc., the parent organization to CURE Media Group, which combines science and humanity to make cancer understandable.
CURE®’s Advocacy Spotlight Partnership program is dedicated to transforming the understanding and treatment of cancer by sharing information that empowers patients and the medical community. CURE Media Group’s flagship product, CURE® magazine, was launched in 2002 for cancer patients, survivors and caregivers. It has become the largest consumer magazine in the United States focused entirely on cancer.
Prostate cancer is the most common nonskin cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in men in the United States. “That’s why the partnership between CURE Media Group and Prostate Cancer International is so important,” Hennessy said. He noted that Prostate Cancer International is a nonprofit dedicated to informing the global public about the risks associated with prostate cancer and strategies to manage those risks. It also supports prostate cancer research into effective prevention, diagnosis, management and cure of prostate cancer in all its stages.
Cancer CAREpoint is focused on helping all cancer patients in Silicon Valley, Calif., no matter where they receive medical treatment, what type of cancer they have or their insurance status. About 10,000 individuals in Silicon Valley are diagnosed with cancer each year, and thousands more live as cancer survivors. Cancer CAREpoint provides emotional, practical and psychological support for patients and families.
“These partners broaden the reach of the Advocacy Spotlight Partnership program, bringing both an international perspective and a local focus to our mission,” said Hennessy.
