TOLMAR Pharmaceuticals Continues Commitment to Prostate Cancer Community, Supports ZERO Campaign

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TOLMAR Pharmaceuticals, Inc., focused on specialty pharmaceutical products, is partnering with the not-for-profit organization ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer in a series of events this fall that will bring together cancer survivors, healthcare providers, family, friends, athletes, and businesses united in their desire to fight prostate cancer.

TOLMAR Pharmaceuticals is participating in the 26+ run/walk events hosted by ZERO across the nation in the months of September, October, and November to raise funds and awareness of prostate cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death in American men after lung cancer. The disease affects one in seven men.

"TOLMAR Pharmaceuticals proudly supports the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge, the largest men's health event series in the nation," said Susan Rodriguez, CEO, TOLMAR Pharmaceuticals. "Along with our parent company, TOLMAR Inc., we have a long history of supporting patients with advanced prostate cancer, their healthcare providers, and their communities. As the distributor and marketer of ELIGARD® (leuprolide acetate for injectable suspension) we are honored to partner with ZERO to help raise awareness of prostate cancer."

TOLMAR Pharmaceuticals will also participate in the inaugural 2014 ZERO Regional Champions Leadership Conference, a Washington, DC, event pairing 50 leading prostate cancer advocates and medical professionals with elected officials to address patient access and care issues and make prostate cancer research a federal funding priority, in mid-September.

"We are grateful for the support from TOLMAR to help save lives and keep families together," said ZERO CEO Jamie Bearse. "With help from our partners, we're taking a huge step closer to creating Generation ZERO – the first generation of men free from prostate cancer."

In 2014, 233,000 new U.S. cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed and 29,480 men will die of the disease, according to the National Cancer Institute (www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/types/prostate). The American Urological Association estimates 5-10 percent of newly diagnosed cases involve advanced disease, and some men who were initially treated with surgery or radiation therapy later develop a recurrence.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
