Malecare, Inc. and Executive Health Exams International Join Forces to Promote Prostate Cancer Awareness
August, 2005—New York, NY— Executive Health Exams International, the leader in preventive healthcare for 93 years, is proud to support Malecare, Inc. in its efforts to promote prostate cancer awareness and education through the donation of its 115 square foot display window at 10 Rockefeller Plaza.
“Because there is no known way to prevent prostate cancer, it is important that every man know his risk level and regularly engage in dialogue with his physician about the disease. Additionally, an annual physical exam is the best possible way to remain vigilant against prostate cancer and to detect the disease early before it becomes fatal,” stated Deborah McKeever, president of Executive Health Exams International. “We are extremely proud to support Malecare, Inc., in its efforts to educate the public about this potentially deadly disease. We know that together our efforts will save lives.”
The three-panel display developed by Malecare urges men to learn more about diagnosis and treatment of the disease. The display also includes information about Malecare’s nationwide prostate cancer support groups and directs viewers to visit the Malecare Prostate Cancer website www.malecare.org for additional information and educational resources.
“Prostate Cancer reminds every diagnosed man that he is mortal; and Malecare helps men face the challenge of this disease with information care and support,” says Malecare’s Darryl Mitteldorf, LCSW. “We are extremely grateful for the window display donation and hope that everyone who passes through Rockefeller Center will take the time to stop and learn about this potentially fatal disease.”
