Did you know that bladder cancer is the 6th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States? This year, over 81,000 people in the US are expected to be diagnosed with bladder cancer, and it is estimated that more than 17,000 people will die from the disease.
The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) mission is to increase public awareness about bladder cancer, advance bladder cancer research, and provide educational and support services for the bladder cancer community.
BCAN's signature awareness event is The Walk to End Bladder Cancer. What began in 2011 as a national Walk for Bladder Cancer has expanded to more than 25 locations across the country, engages close to 3,000 participants annually, and has raised more than $3 million toward bladder cancer education, awareness, and research.
Greater Boston Urology is proud to be the local presenting sponsor at this year's event in Boston. Won't you join us?
