The West Michigan Prostate Health Alliance (WMPHA), a non-profit, volunteer organization, was created in 2018 by a group of West Michigan business leaders who shared something in common - they were all diagnosed with prostate cancer. They each faced treatment options, dealt with personal and family emotions throughout their own journeys, and ultimately made informed decisions and chose treatments that were best for them.
