Our Mission

THE MISSION OF THE PROSTATE FORUM OF ORANGE COUNTY IS TO OFFER HELP AND HOPE TO MEN BY PROVIDING PROSTATE HEALTH INFORMATION.

  • With information, about both malignant and benign prostatic conditions, members can become more knowledgeable promoting earlier detection. They become more aware of options, thereby facilitating informed decisions.
  • The Prostate Forum provides a safe and caring meeting place, where prostate survivors may share their feelings, concerns and experiences, ask questions of others in similar situations and receive understanding, emphathetic support.
  • The Prostate Forum is available to support or initiate other similar groups related to the subject of the prostate, especially in the under-represented various ethnic communities.
  • The Prostate Forum staffs a telephonic HELP-LINE as a general clearing house for objective prostate related knowledge which interested persons may call for information on prostate, support groups etc.
  • The Prostate Forum provides a vehicle for patients to relay their concerns and questions to the medical experts in the field. Members are requested to share only their feelings, information and experiences with others and NOT to give medical advice since such advice is reseved for physicians.

History of the Prostate Forum

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.
