Celebrate Father's Day and Encourage Dad to Get a PSA Test
Pints for Prostates will use the universal language of beer during Father's Day weekend at eight events -- from Brookline, Mass., to Issaquah, Wash. -- where men will be encouraged to get regular checkups and ask for a PSA blood test the next time they see their doctors.
All funds generated by Pints for Prostates benefit the Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network, a 501(c)3 charity that works to support, educate and advocate for men with prostate cancer and their families. Us TOO was founded in 1990 and has a network of more than 300 local chapter support groups that help men dealing with the disease.
