Family & Friends
In August 2012, I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. In October 2012, I underwent surgery to have my prostate removed and, to date, I have no signs of the cancer remaining. Being a cancer survivor would not have been possible without the early detection and being under the experienced hands of my surgeon.
It is also possible, due to events like “Set the Pace for Prostate Cancer” in Denver and throughout the US, that continue to provide funds for free PSA tests and in finding a cure for Prostate Cancer. There are still 33,000 men dying from this disease each year and the numbers are going up, not down. 1 in 6 men will have Prostate Cancer in their lifetime.
So what can you do? Men over 50 should go to your doctor and be tested regularly for Prostate Cancer, with both the PSA and digit tests. If they don’t, they will be one of the 33,000 who die from this! This is very sad, because they could have prevented that from happening.
I would like for you and your loved ones to come out and walk or run the 5k route with survivors like me and help continue the fight against Prostate Cancer. Your participation and donation will aid in detecting and stopping this disease.
