AdMeTech Foundation is a nonprofit organization with the mission to end prostate cancer crisis, which strikes as many as 1 in 6 men. AdMeTech provides international leadership in education and research to advance accurate diagnostic tools for early detection and treatment, which are critical for cure, saving lives and improving quality of life in millions of men. AdMeTech created Dance for the Cure of Prostate Cancer, a public awareness campaign with the goal to increase government and philanthropic funding for research and innovation.
On October 10, AdMeTech Foundation in cooperation with Arthur Murray International (AMI) organized Dance for the Cure of Prostate Cancer benefit at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. This event featured Thomas M. Menino, Boston City Mayor, Barry Hughson, Executive Director of Boston Ballet, and Jim DiCecca, President of the Massachusetts Association of Ballroom Dancing (MASSabda), a chapter of USA Dance.
Dr. Faina Shtern, President of the AdMeTech Foundation, joined efforts with Mr. John Kimmins, President of AMI and Mr. Mark Lightner, Area Chair of AMI in New England, to assure success of this effort. Dr. Shtern commented, “Prostate cancer is a threat to every man. Under AdMeTech and Arthur Murray’s leadership, many of the region’s dance studios united in the fight against prostate cancer and brought together more than 200 people. It was deeply moving to see so many New Englanders dancing for men who may face prostate cancer, for men who live with prostate cancer, and for men who lost their battle and died of prostate cancer.”
