About the Foundation

The Prostatitis Foundation developed from an early sci,med.prostate/prostatitis newsgroup started by Dr. Bradley Hennenfent. The newsgroup had drawn a tremendous response from a large group of prostatitis patients and/or their families. After much discussion it became clear that a webpage should be set up to provide information to these patients and some effort to encourage research by the National Institute of Health (NIH) was necessary. There was very little research being done. Patients were very frustrated about how little was known about how to treat prostatitis.

The Prostatitis Foundation determined in their mission statement that we should educate the public about the prevalence of prostatitis and do what we could to encourage and support research to find the cause and a cure for prostatitis. Our newsletters, webpage and forum are all attempts to do that and serve the public to the best of our ability.

We do not receive any government funding and rely on support from patients and their families. The officers and directors are all volunteers. Some of us are or have been patients and desire to prevent anyone else from sharing our experiences and frustrations with prostatitis.
