The Organization

This non-profit organization, Federal Tax ID 59-3545266, provides men and their families throughout the state of Florida with education programs and forums, printed materials on cancer, and support groups for cancer patients and their families.

"Florida Prostate Cancer Network was founded by Robert J. Samuels in 1997. Mr. Samuels is a retired banker who was diagnosed with prostate cancer. In his quest for information about the disease, he found that little information was available. As a result of his research and all that he learned about prostate cancer he became a health activist. He was the founding chairman of the National Prostate Cancer Coalition and then returned to his home state to found the Florida Prostate Cancer Network. He has been a driving force behind the men^s health movement in the State of Florida and has been recognized by numerous organizations for his good work."
