Dear Friends and Family,
This February, Ray, Petey and I are taking part in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit. We were selected by ZERO to represent our home district and advocate for prostate cancer research funding.
we'll be joining over 120 other advocates from around the country to knock on our Congresspeople's doors and share why prostate cancer research is so critical to ending the disease.
As we prepare for this exciting opportunity, we need your help.
We are fundraising for ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer. They're making a real impact on the lives of patients and their families on a daily basis. Not only are they doing good, but they're doing it efficiently: more than 94 cents per dollar raised goes toward patient programs.
Join us and ZERO to make a bigger difference for the men and their families who are impacted by prostate cancer. Here's the link to my personal fundraising page:
Linda, Ray and Petey
This cause is very dear to me. June 19, 2009 my life changed as a Wife we heard those words that no Man wants to hear. My husband was told he has an agressive form of prostate cancer. I was stunned, horrified and shocked. So many questions started running through my head. Why? When? How? What about our four sons? When my husband and I got married in 1983 we were suppose to live our Golden Years Care Free! On October 12, 2009 my role changed one more now to Caregiver. Ray had surgery to remove the prostate but the disease had spread to the lymph nodes. Currently he is in Remission! Even with him being in Remission we worry if the cancer has come back, so evry three months Ray has a PSA Test done. That week waiting on the results is so stressful. But when it comes back "ZERO" we have a sigh of relief until the next test.
Every 20 minutes a man dies from prostate cancer. That is unacceptable and so I’m fundraising to help create Generation ZERO, the first generation of men free from the pain and suffering of prostate cancer.
Your donations are key to our success. You will help fund critical programs to serve men and families fighting this disease here in my community and across the country. ZERO uses the fundraising dollars for research and advocacy efforts. Our impact will be immense and we’ll do it together.
Please make a donation today. Thank you for your support!
