*Note: PAACT changed it’s name to Prostate Advocates Aiding Choices in Treatments in Dec 2015.
Welcome. The PAACT organization is dedicated to helping patients and caregivers develop a better understanding of their own cancer characteristics, empowering them to research more effectively and develop better questions for their medical team (physicians, nurses, pharmacists, etc.) First time callers to PAACT receive our initial package of prostate cancer information. The educational material is designed to provide a quick introduction into some of their current issues with prostate cancer, including our free quarterly newsletter, “Prostate Cancer Communication”. The caller is then placed on the free mailing list for future newsletters.
Prostate Cancer Communication (PAACT’s free quarterly newsletter) is mailed in hard copy to over 20,000 recipients. Most of the readers are patients and caregivers, but the mailing list also includes over 75 support groups, and over 70 medical clinics in the US.
PAACT is a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) non profit organization that depends greatly on donations and financial support from the general public. The standard voluntary membership contribution is $55.00 which covers the cost of the initial patient package of PC information. For the patient package of PC information and our “Prostate Cancer Communication” newsletter contact Molly at the PAACT office at PO Box 45, Sparta, MI 49345 or 11555 Jadon Ct NE, Sparta, MI 49345, Phone 616-453-1477, Fax 616-453-1846, or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The goals for PAACT established at its founding have not changed. Until a cure is discovered, patient empowerment through knowledge is the primary mission.
