Are you smart and hardworking and obsessed with burying prostate cancer once and for all? Then this is the job for you. “Save the Males,” a/k/a National The Prostate Cancer Coalition, seeks a talented fundraiser, organizer and activist.
Oh dream job, where have you been??
If you are also interested, I hope you’re not too good. Then again, may the best man win, even if it is a woman!
The National Prostate Cancer Coalition is an excellent organization which offers support and advice on a broad range of issues, including legal and financial. They also have a good section on nutrition. I highly recommend checking out their website, fightprostatecancer.org.
Recently, there was a highly publicized study which concluded that desk jobs are not good for men with prostate cancer (or for preventing prostate cancer!). But before you go out and get a job in construction, remember how often they change their mind about these things.
First they said, for example, that there is a link between prostate cancer and promiscuity. Now they say “frequent ejaculation” is not a risk factor. So at least if you’re a guy and you get this job, you’ll be able to stay focused, if you know what I mean. ;-))
