In doing research for our campaign, we've been shocked to learn that many men do not know the prostate's function. Richard Saul Wurman's epochal book Information Anxiety says that if someone does not understand the basics of a topic, he can't learn anything new about it. So that's why we're not about cancer. We're about the prostate. Look for more retro magazine and movie posters about positive prostate-health steps to take coming soon. If you have prostate cancer, our goal is make you grin with reminders about healthy attitudes and actions to help fight the disease.

Kim Garretson's monthly poster is featured daily on our homepage and at www.pcaw.org (Prostate Cancer Awareness Week). His book, Niches of Clarity at Gunflint, is a sardonic view of the infuriatingly awful healthcare practices and lazy cavalier behavior by men that together give us today's prostate cancer epidemic.

"Instead of adding to the Web's voluminous text resources, I chose to modernize pulp fiction magazine covers from the 30's to the 60's. (See www.MansGland.com ) Why? Because I believe smiling at the absurdity of the disease is one of many coping and healing paths to follow," she says.

"My Requests: Women viewers: Please lead healthy men by the ear to this page and make them look. Healthy Men: Glance, grimace, get a PSA. Men with Prostate Cancer: Hey, try laughing in the face of dread. It helps." Kim can be reached at E-Mail.
