The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Prostate Cancer Foundation are joining together to promote screening, prevention, research and treatment for the disease. The foundation is putting forth $50 million, to fund an initiative to expand prostate cancer research and speed delivery of treatment for veterans. “To effectively serve our veterans and to keep VA on the cutting edge of medical research, we need government, corporate and non-profit organizations working together,” said VA Secretary Robert A. McDonald. “Our work together will save veterans’ lives.”
