CHARLIE ROBERT PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION INC
The Charlie Robert Prostate Cancer Foundation was created in 2017 in remembrance and honor of Charles Robert Bathelus who passed away on November 8, 2016, after an almost three year battle with Stage 4 Metastatic Prostate Cancer.
The Charlie Robert Prostate Cancer Foundation will promote awareness, empower, encourage and educate men while saving lives before it is too late. While cancer is recognized as one of the leading causes of death among women, prostate cancer is often overlooked as one of the leading causes of death among men. It is time to empower our men on the importance of getting tested and living a healthier lifestyle.
The foundation will be a nationally recognized organization and the goal of our efforts is to help reduce deaths from prostate cancer by 20 percent between 2018-2030. The Charlie Robert Prostate Cancer Foundation will continue to be a Charlie's Angel and Stand for a Cure!
