Prostate Forum of Orange County, California -
Proud Chapter of Us TOO International, Inc.
Orange County Board of Supervisors recognizes September 2016 as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and presents the Forum with a signed plaque. See photo of plaque here!
THE MISSION OF THE PROSTATE FORUM OF ORANGE COUNTY IS TO OFFER HELP AND HOPE TO MEN BY PROVIDING PROSTATE HEALTH INFORMATION.
March 1992 marked the inception of the Prostate Forum in Fullerton, CA by co-founders Bill Dehn,(now deceased, of ALS) and Murray Corwin, who is a Prostate Cancer survivor.
Bill and Murray met in 1991 at a hospital support group meeting. They went to the meeting to pass out general information based on their own personal experiences and they were asked not to return. In December 1991, they decided to start an independent group of their own which would have the freedom to speak about and discuss the disease without any censorship or restrictions. In March 1992, they had a meeting place, a flyer, and a core group of thirteen men. The recall of many sad experiences with the disease is ever present, keeping us focused on the elements of our logo: INFORMATION, EDUCATION AND HOPE.
