About Patient Advocates for Advanced Cancer Treatments

The Patient Advocates for Advanced Cancer Treatments (PAACT) is a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to finding answers for individuals with prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is a prevalent form of cancer affecting the prostate gland in males. PAACT is a place where affected individuals can obtain information. The PAACT organization is comprised of lay people and physicians who have in common a sincere desire to help affected individuals become aware of the present understanding of prostate cancer; to allow an affected individual to participate in his own healing; and finally, to direct an affected individual to the appropriate physicians, and medical centers to achieve these goals. Established in 1983, PAACT maintains constant research of medical documents, and clinical studies on the most advanced methods of detection, diagnostic procedures, evaluation, and treatments for prostate cancer. Is also committed to furnishing affected individuals, physicians, and advocates with the results of these studies. Consisting of 37,000 members and 150 chapters, the organization produces educational materials including the “PAACT Patient Information Package,” and a quarterly newsletter entitled “Prostate Cancer Communication.”
