The evening will be an amazing night of blues music where attendees learn about risk factors, screening, treatment and hope for a long life when diagnosed with prostate cancer. We will hear powerful messages from musicians, medical experts, survivors and advocates. We are excited that Viraj Master, MD, PhD a urologic oncologist from Emory University will be joining us for the evening.
Proceeds from both events support national prostate cancer education organizations, PHEN, Us Too and ZERO, and the Blues Foundation’s HART Fund (Handy Artists Relief Trust), which helps blues musicians and their families in financial need due to a broad range of health concerns. Prostate cancer survivors will share their stories and leaders from the urology and oncology communities will share their knowledge.
