“It’s Worth the Fight” is a program designed to shine a light on the special needs of men  with advanced prostate cancer. While the program specifically targets veterans, it is relevant for all men at risk of or living with prostate cancer. Supported by Sanofi US in collaboration with Men’s Health Network (MHN), Women Against Prostate Cancer (WAPC), and the Veterans Health Council (VHC), the campaign calls upon men (along with the women and family members in their lives) to summon their resolve to help themselves fight this disease.
