I was informed today by PCa advocate Judy Thurman, that we have lost Howard Hansen to this disease.

Mr. Hansen is the last surviving co-founder of and has served men with advanced prostate cancer for many years. Howard Hansen has won the top award ~ the Harry Pinchot Award ~ for his service in serving the prostate cancer community and it was presented to him in August.

My sincerest condolences are extended to Howard's family and friends. I am very sorry for the loss of a truly great advocate who served us all well.

If there were a hall of fame for PCa warriors and advocates, he would be there. Done alot to help others by running  group. Helped people from all different countries in the process to learn about various protocols and treatments. I found his information very valuable, I knew it was coming as his health was being threatened for years fighting PCa. This is a warrior whom fought this for 17 years and was never going to give into the dragon. You would be amazed at his overall treatments that he went through and informed others about his protocols. One of best and he was just given the Harry Pinchot award recently, which is was totally deserving of.
