"We hope that all our fans take a moment during the month of September to educate themselves, as well as their loved ones, on how they can work with their healthcare provider on how to combat this disease."
"The American Cancer Society is honored to be invited to work with Marvel to raise awareness of prostate cancer this September," added Dr. Richard Wender, Chief Cancer Control Officer for the American Cancer Society.
