“Our mission is to improve care and reduce burden of prostate cancer for men in Norway”
PCFN has four objects:
– Educate Norwegians regarding prostate cancer
– Enrich the training of Norwegian doctors through fellowships
– Advance prostate cancer understanding through research
– Disseminate knowledge through web and international meeting
“After being diagnosed with prostate cancer and undergoing successful treatment at Johns Hopkins, I realized that the Norwegian medical community could hugely benefit from a closer dialogue with their American counterparts, and that this in turn would help Norwegian prostate cancer sufferers. In order to help facilitate this dialogue, and at the same time promote research into prostate cancer, I decided to initiate the creation of Prostate Cancer Foundation of Norway.”
