Blue Flags for Prostate Cancer? Good Idea!!!

Bouncing around the MensRightsReddit today and came across something that is going on this weekend in the state of Washington:
2012 Blue Flag Press Release

Tonight, for the fifth consecutive year is BLUE FLAGS
presented by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center and the Washington officials Association.

This WEEKEND throughout the state of Washington
every high school football official will use a BLUE
penalty flag in replacement of the traditional yellow
flag as a way to raise awareness for prostate cancer.

One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer
in their lifetime, and there are more cases of prostate
cancer annually than any other major cancer.

Getting checked and catching prostate cancer in its
earliest stages is critical. We encourage MEN to
make an appointment to see your doctor today!

Isn't that just great?

There's not much attention paid to men's health and it's something that needs to be talked about and acted on.

Kudos to the folks in Washington!
