History

The International Prostate Cancer Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable organization with a voluntary faculty of international expert physicians and survivors who have joined in the fight against prostate cancer. Our mission is to cure those afflicted with the disease and to help prevent it in those who are predisposed to it. 

Conceived by cancer survivors, our mission is clear and our approach is unique. Our foundation is led by Dr. Vipul Patel, a practicing physician with a worldwide patient base. This, combined with our expert volunteer board, gives us a unique perspective of the disease on both a clinical and non-clinical level.

Our founder, Dr. Vipul Patel created the International Prostate Cancer Foundation (IPCF) in 2008 to fill a void in men’s health advocacy and to raise awareness and support scientific advances in prostate cancer.

The spirit of our foundation is formed from the inspiration of our doctors, patients and healthcare advocates. Our mission is to serve, educate, and innovate to help men understand their risks and what they can do.

We started our mission to eradicate this disease on a global level. However, there are only so many men that our physicians can personally treat… and so our vision has become broader and more global to help those beyond the boundaries of our practice and those who are predisposed genetically to this disease.

We urge you all to stand with us and help eliminate this disease.
Please support us in our fight!

Our Mission

Our goal is to help the scientific world find both the molecular and genetic signatures that predispose the development of prostate cancer and to use this information to impact those afflicted with and those predisposed to prostate cancer.

The global impact of a lack of education in prostate cancer is staggering. Men diagnosed early with prostate cancer have a greater than 90% chance of recovery. Educating patients on the virtues of regular prostate cancer screening, along with their treatment options, is of paramount importance. We also actively support physician education via fellowships and seminars.

An additional goal of our foundation is early detection
via education to improve compliance in yearly screening.
