It’s Time 4 The 99’s Al Brown is Today’s Honoree

AlBrownAbout: Asking each of the 99 to actively begin identifying and recruiting 99 Brothers to commit to being screened

Company Overview: As a prostate cancer survivor, advocate and speaker…. I have spoken to a number of men throughout Chicago and around the country. I have come to the realization that if we are to survive, it is going to take one of the best resources available within our communities… Not the church, not the clinics or hospitals, but the Women!

Description: Our goal is to identify, educate and arm 99 Women with the knowledge and understanding of how prostate cancer is killing Men, Black Men in particular, at an alarming rate…and how preventable it is when caught in the early stage. Black Men are dying from prostate cancer at a rate of 2+x’s greater than white men.

Race/Ethnicity Male – All Races 23.6 per 100,000 men
White 21.7 per 100,000 men
Black 53.1 per 100,000 men
Asian/Pacific Islander 10.0 per 100,000 men
American Indian/Alaska Native a 19.7 per 100,000 men
Hispanic b 17.8 per 100,000 men
