Understanding and managing prostate cancer survivorship is important for a good quality of life and for long term survival. Indeed, the men most at risk for dying from prostate cancer are prostate cancer survivors. With a 140% higher death rate, African American survivors should have a strong and consistent focus on survivorship issues beginning at the time of initial disease diagnosis.
PHEN is launching its "Faces and Voices" initiative in 2013 to outreach and educate about managing survivorship through the real - life experiences of survivors.

Members of the "PHEN Survivor Network" will discuss their personal survivorship experiences and lessons learned. Perspectives from men newly diagnosed with prostate cancer to men with more than ten years as survivors will be presented. The Roundtable will be moderated by PHEN president Thomas Farrington.
