"Our mission is to get men checked for prostate cancer."
The Mohawk Mission was first formed in 2021 as a social media platform for spreading awareness about prostate cancer. It included this website and pages on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. Late in 2021 we formed a men's only Facebook for prostate cancer patient/survivors called the PC Tribe. This group provides men a place to freely share their journeys, the ups and downs throughout it and find support from those going through the same thing.
Early in 2022 the mission became a not-for-profit organization with the main goal of providing prostate cancer awareness both locally and through social media. We also support the PC Tribe and the Illinois Valley Prostate Cancer Support Group held in Ottawa, IL. We feel a real need for support in rural communities which seem to get bypassed by the large national organizations. We encourage you to do the same in your communities.
