LOS ANGELES - Jan. 16, 2018 - PRLog -- The Cancer Journeys Foundation has been nominated for a 2018 California Innovation Award for its work in developing an innovative Internet-based prostate cancer early detection tool. The California Innovation Awards honor innovative companies and individuals and build a community of innovators in the state of California who are providing a local, regional, state, national and international economic impact through innovation.
Each year, the California Innovation Awards honor ten categories, including Consumer Electronics, Consumer Goods, Education, Energy & Sustainability, Health & Medical, Media, Professional Services, Science, Technology, and Transportation. Each category may have subcategories.
Products and services are judged on their overall value and impact through carefully vetted judges.
"We are honored to have been nominated for a 2018 California Innovation Award for our development of the ProstateTracker early detection system. Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer and kills almost 29,000 men each year because the find out they have the disease too late for effective treatment." Said Robert Hess, Cancer Journeys Foundation president.
According to Hess, "We wanted to develop a very simple early detection solution that would be available to all men and their families. We teamed with Infobridge Solutions to develop the Internet-based ProstateTrackerApp that uses the PSA blood test to make a man's prostate cancer risk clearly visible. ProstateTrackerApp is anonymous and free."
