Highlighting Hereditary Cancer for Men’s Health Month

June 10, 2023

Highlighting Hereditary Cancer for Men’s Health Month

In recognition of Men’s Health Month, FORCE launched a nationwide media campaign in June to spread the word about how hereditary cancer affects men. As part of this effort, we wrote an informative news story featuring testimonials from men in the FORCE community, including Dr. Matthew Simpson, Brad Hertz, Junius Nottingham and other volunteers.

Written in both English and Spanish, our article appeared in over 1,000 publications, including the English- and Spanish-language issues of the Houston Chronicle, San Francisco Chronicle and Buffalo News. We also directed readers to FORCE’s Men’s Portal, so they could access more resources related to hereditary cancer in men.  

Read the full English article in the San Francisco Chronicle.

This campaign was generously sponsored by AstraZeneca.
