Rick Davis

Patient Leader

Since my own T3 prostate cancer diagnosis in 2007, I am committed to helping others forge an easier path. First I found no exercise support for people living with cancer and created www.medafit.org. I also saw men placed on hormone therapy received little to no support and set about slowly changing that situation. Working with UCSF, and support groups we have made significant headway. In 2010 I noticed a total lack of live audio-visual virtual support groups. We piloted prostate cancer groups & in 2016 formed Answer Cancer Foundation. Today www.ancan.org runs 19+ monthly groups soon to host non-cancer groups. We are the online leader providing peer-to-peer live virtual support groups.
