In Steve's Memory
One in nine fathers, sons, husbands, brothers, partners, and friends will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, including 12,600 men in Texas this year alone.
My husband, Steven Shade, was the one out of nine. On April 11, 2014 he was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer that had already spread to his bones. He lived for another 3-1/2 years. And believe me when I say lived, he lived. He learned how to fly with a paramotor. He continued working his insurance business. This is a painful disease and I know he suffered. But, he never (literally, never) complained, ever! He was actively involved in his daughter's wedding in 2015 and made sure she got her dream wedding. He continued to be a loving, amazing husband, dad, son brother, and friend to many. He continued to focus on the needs of his insurance customers. He fought a great fight, he gave it his all, but in the end, cancer won out. He passed way on September 16, 2017 - one year prior to the 2018 ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk. He left an amazing legacy and I am blessed to have known and loved, and been loved by, this incredible man.
I'm participating in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk because I want to put an end to prostate cancer. I don't want other men and their families to have to live through this. Please support me by making a tax-deductible contribution today!
