Welcome to My Personal Page
John & I were shocked when John was diagnosed over 12 years ago with prostate cancer. He was a young 44 year old, so he chose to beat cancer with surgery and thought he was cured. Unfortunately, his cancer returned in 2010 and again in 2012 and again in 2014.
Five years ago, we attended a National conference for ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer and then found a talented oncologist in Charlottesville, Virginia. John made some healthy life changes and began an intensive treatment regimen for advanced prostate cancer. He continues these treatments on a daily basis.
Some of these treatments have been developed in recent years as a result of federal prostate cancer research funding. ZERO is a national leader in prostate cancer advocacy, protecting & increasing federal research funding that has led to several key prostate cancer treatments for extending & improving the lives of men. I truly believe John's oncologist and ZERO have been instrumental in extending John's life.
Too many men & their families are effected by this disease. Many talented medical professionals are developing more effective treatments every year to find a cure for prostate cancer. To raise funds for research, education and increase awareness about early detection of prostate cancer, our team, The Saluda Sundogs, is participating in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk on Saturday, November 4 in Asheville Please consider donating to ZERO to help the men like my husband, John, my Dad, Adam, C.O., David, Gary, Mark, Marty, Stoney and so many more.
Thank you for your support!! Together, we are making a difference and saving lives. And our world is a better place for all. Laura
