ation Award for our development of the ProstateTracker early detection system. Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer and kills almost 29,000 men each year because they find out they have the disease too late for effective treatment,” said Robert Hess, Cancer Journeys Foundation president.

According to Hess, “We wanted to develop a very simple, cost-effective early detection solution that would be available to all men and their families at no cost. We teamed with Infobridge Solutions to develop the Internet-based ProstateTrackerApp that uses the PSA blood test to make a man’s prostate cancer risk clearly visible. We're delight to say that ProstateTrackerApp is anonymous and free.”
