For Dedication and Support to the Prostate Cancer Community
Harry Pinchot was widely recognized as one of the most knowledgeable laymen when it comes to the biology, prevention and treatment of prostate cancer. He positively affected the lives of countless men (and their loved ones) afflicted by prostate cancer through his efforts at the Prostate Cancer Research Institute (PCRI.) He served as PCRI’s Program Director for over a decade, and was known as “Helpline Harry” because he was always taking calls from concerned prostate cancer patients. His devotion to the mission of educating men and highlighting the plight of those afflicted with the disease has earned him national recognition.
Harry lost his 13-year battle with prostate cancer in January 2008. In his honor, PCRI created the Harry Pinchot Award to recognize unsung heroes like Harry that are out there making a difference in other people’s lives. In 2008, the first three Harry Pinchot Award Winners were selected, with a fourth award last year. This year, the tradition will continue with the selection of another individual who exemplifies Harry’s legacy.
