URF Board member, Bud Cappola, with Tommy Lasorda, representative for the Prostate Cancer Foundation, at the kick off Dominick’s Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Dominick’s and the Prostate Cancer Foundation announced a $100,000 grant to the Urological Research Foundation for Dr. Catalona’s collaborative research.
The funds and energies of the Urological Research Foundation (URF) are directed to research
for the prevention, detection, treatment and cure of diseases of the prostate and most specifically,
Prostate cancer causes the death of tens of thousands of men every year and terrible dysfunction
and suffering for additional tens of thousands. The need for more medical progress against this disease
is compellingly clear.
The vision, over 20 years ago, which led to the URF and which guides the work of the foundation to this day,
is that we must support the energies, efforts and expertise of those who treat prostate cancer and those who are
searching for a cure.
The Medical Director of the URF, Dr. William J. Catalona, leads one of America's premier teams of physicians
and scientists in this endeavor. Providing the support to them that would accelerate the progres for both treatment
of prostate cancer and the search for a cure is a primary goal of the URF.
Funds from the URF complement existing sources of grant research money. (Please see Grant Awards of Dr. William J. Catalona.)
The Board of the URF assures all donors that every available dollar is used to avoid further obstacles and delays which arise because other funds were not available
to permit immediate actions.
