Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear Friends and Family,
As some of you may know, I am a cancer survivor! Four years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. But, with proper treatment and care, I have so far been able to overcome this disease. Many men that I know were not so lucky.
Approximately 90% of all prostate cancers are detected in the local and regional stages, so the cure rate is very high: Nearly 100% of men diagnosed and treated at this stage will be disease-free after five years. I'm approaching my fifth year and, so far, so good.
One in seven fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, partners, and friends will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, including 13,210 men in Texas this year alone. However, prostate cancer is still a deadly disease.
Deaths from prostate cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind lung cancer and colorectal cancer. About 1 in 36 will die of this disease. Prostate cancer can be a serious disease, but most men diagnosed with it do not die.
I'm participating in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk because I want to put an end to prostate cancer. Please support me by making a tax-deductible contribution today!
Your donation provides much needed funds for research, education and awareness, and patient assistance for prostate cancer patients in our local community.
Please, will you team up with me to fight prostate cancer now? I know you’ll feel proud knowing you’ve helped save lives.
Thank you so much for your help.
