Malecare is careful and open in its dissemination of information, supportive in its help of men with prostate cancer at early stages and in advanced disease, and a font of information and encouragement to families, caregivers, professionals and clinicians and clinical researchers worldwide. Its support of clinical trials and all kinds of research ideas through the brilliantly conceived StartACure links crowd sourced funding with real projects that can both support researchers and teach the general reader how to appreciate and understand how research works. And Malecare's attention to the needs of ALL men -- gay and straight, old and young, with illness and worried well, of all ethnic and racial backgrounds, in NY and across the world -- is true to its name. Thanks to founder Darryl Mitteldorf, LCSW, to Joel, to the board and volunteers for providing a real service.

I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer and could not find any help or support from anyone or from another place. Malecare Is a fantastic programm for men like me. They provide meaningful education and support for men with metastatic prostate cancer . They are the only ones I know that do this

They are accurate not clogged with advertisements and speak to my situation. No other organization seems to care the way they do. I wish I had a million dollars tog give them, it would be worth it.

Malecare is a Non-profit organization that brings men from all walks of life together who have or have had prostate cancer. It offers support to individuals who previously would have felt or been isolated. Under the leadership of Daryl Mittendorf the group focuses on all issues regarding the disease and brings to the vanguard health awareness. Darryl shares his time and expertise at no cost and contributes much to the well being of its participants.

While increasing, prostate cancer awareness and advocacy is not representative of is impact on society. In addition to is support network for those diagnosed with prostate cancer, Malecare does an excellent job in increasing public awareness. An example is their ongoing work in organizing support for and encouraging citizens to contact their government officials to ensure continued government research funding for prostate cancer. I am proud to support this organization.

Though Malecare seems more focused on prostate and testicular cancer, their social worker was able to help me connect with other men diagnosed with lung cancer. Malecare also showed me how to use the internet to get quality kinds of information.

Malecare is one of America's great cancer survivor nonprofits, bare none. As a member of the Board of Directors, I have seen it grow to provide services to male cancer survivors, where other nonprofits simply dropped the ball. I am honored to be a part of Malecare's leadership and endorse it's standing on the Great Nonprofits list.

Malecarupport is a support organization that guides one from that deafening silence at the moment of diagnosis through the meandering matrix of options and confusion to a point of reasoned and informed decision making. This alone is priceless.

I was all alone with this diagnosis of prostate cancer and found Malecare which held me and gave me courage and the latest knowledge. I could not survived without this support group and I still come to meetings to encourage others to attend.
