One of the world's oldest and largest
Prostate Cancer Advocacy Organizations
PAACT, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit prostate cancer advocacy organization, founded in 1984 by a prostate cancer (PC) patient, for the purpose of furnishing PC patients, physicians, and advocates with the most advanced methods of detection, diagnostic procedures, evaluation, and treatments for prostate cancer. From twenty eight years of experience, with thousands of PC patients and many physicians specializing in the treatment, it has become apparent that patient empowerment through knowledge is a vital ingredient in the selection of a treatment option, by the patient and his doctor, that will assure the best chance for the successful management of PC. PAACT supplies an initial patient package of information on all available, approved treatment options, prostate cancer educational material, and two copies of our “Prostate Cancer Communication" newsletter (a quarterly publication to keep our members updated on new developments and other timely PC related articles). We also have a counselor available Monday - Friday, 10:00 a.m - 3:00 p.m., to answer any patient questions, which is provided at no financial obligation to the patient. PAACT depends entirely upon a nominal voluntary donation of $55 annually from its members. This allows us to cover such costs as printing, mailing, supplies, labor, and sending information to those less fortunate individuals that are unable to contribute. Our Legal committee can help patients with insurance problems.
