As a young survivor and finally starting to feel I need to start to opening my mouth and being active of raising awareness but moreso funding for Prostate Cancer Research. I have been researching the various charities and looking at sites that rate them. I am amazed at some of the CEO's of the chairtable organaztions make!!! My goal is in the spring to start orgainzing and running charitable events for Prostate Cancer Research and Prostate Cancer Survivors. My goal is that our sons and grandsons will not have to go through what he have. Can someone tell me which orgainzation is the best in regards to using the money donated to these two causes. Thanks!
