Prestigious national ballroom competition Yankee Classic stages professional celebrities of the ABC TV megahit show Dancing with the Stars (DWTS) in support of the AdMeTech Foundation’s quest to create Manogram™: Life-saving imaging for men. Yankee Classic featured Dance for a Cure Championships to benefit AdMeTech Foundation’s programs in research and awareness which are aimed at creating accurate diagnostic tools for prostate cancer akin to life-saving mammography for breast cancer. While prostate cancer strikes 1 in 6 men and has become even more common than breast cancer (striking 1 in 8 women), men do not have reliable tools for early detection and treatment. AdMeTech Foundation’s Dance for a Cure of Prostate Cancer was created to change that.
