On Sept. 3, the Wilshire Grand Center, U.S. Bank Tower, LAX pylons, Grand Park, Capitol Records, the Moreno Valley “M,” the Ferris wheel at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier and the Prostate Cancer Foundation headquarters will kick off Prostate Cancer Awareness Month with blue lights.
These landmarks will join many other structures across all 50 states and the District of Columbia that will be lit blue to signify unity and to support research efforts in finding a cure for prostate cancer, a disease that will affect one in nine men and one in six African-American men in the U.S. Light blue is recognized as the official color to shed a light on prostate cancer.
On one specific day, “Light It Blue” will serve as a visual reminder that nearly 32,000 men are predicted to die from prostate cancer in 2019. By encouraging Americans (especially men) to take notice and take action, that number can be significantly reduced because prostate cancer is 99% treatable if caught early.
To help create awareness, the PCF is asking Americans to join in, and the public is invited to show their support by installing a blue light bulb at home or in the office, snapping a photo of that location and posting it on social media using #LightItBlue.
Communities across the country can also be more involved by suggesting a landmark in their town or city they want lit blue for the month.
