In my father's honor
Some have asked, 'why as a woman do I advocate for prostate cancer?' When my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer I was by his side involved in every aspect with the Urologist and decision making regarding the best treatment for him. As a woman and daughter, I experienced up close and personal the affect this disease had on him physically and emotionally. I felt the impact of how this disease affects the family in more ways than you can imagine.
My dad survived prostate cancer for many years because he was detected early which was key. In his honor, I’m sure that he is proud to know that I took up the gaunlet to spread awareness, raise funds and do whatever it takes to use this knowledge to help men and their families.
One in seven fathers, sons, brothers, partners, and friends will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, including more than 180,000 throughout the U.S. this year. Let's put an end to this!
