Homegrown Fundraiser for Prostate Cancer Research Returns to UCSF
Join Septembeard and TEAM UCSF!
By UCSFUrology | UCSF Urology | August 20, 2013
Our TEAM UCSF is growing and, so can you! Septembeard.org is a clever non-profit, founded by patient Art Wagner, which raises funds for prostate cancer research by asking volunteers to grow beards during September, Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
In 2012, UCSF received $55,000 from Septembeard to advance important research in prostate cancer thanks to generous donors who sponsored beards all over the country. Dr. Carroll views research as key, "The robust, innovative urology research programs here at UCSF are focused on ways to prevent and better treat all stages of prostate cancer. It’s critical that these programs maintain their momentum so our cancer center can uphold its mission to be pioneers in interdisciplinary cancer research and its translation into improved prevention, detection, and treatment.”
