Blue September & Facing Up to Prostate Cancer

  • In 2012, more than 240,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and more than 33,000 men will die from prostate cancer.
  • One new prostate cancer case occurs every 2.2 minutes.
  • A man dies from prostate cancer every 15.6 minutes.

September was Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and PRVideo.TV worked along side Blue September and Tellem Grody PR to capture the heartfelt mission of the Los Angeles awareness event at City Hall on video and in photo stills. Blue September is a critically acclaimed international awareness campaign founded to increase awareness of prostate cancer. During September people are encouraged to paint their faces blue to increase outreach and help save lives.

Councilman Tom LaBonge, Radiation Oncologist Dr. Howard Sandler, Kaley Todd from California Walnuts, Daniel Zenka from the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Geoff Burton, Blue September’s International Spokesperson, and other supporters gathered for the “Blue Tie” event and the lighting of LA City Hall blue. The event was a huge success for Blue September and we look forward to their Los Angeles return next year!
