Did you know that one in nine men will get prostate cancer in his lifetime? OR that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death by cancer in men?
Last year, I participated in the Zero Cancer Run/ Walk for prostate cancer and was absolutely blown away by all the support my family received in such a short amount of time. This year, my brother and I decided to run together, in the hopes of continuing to spread awareness for the cause.
Since the last Zero Cancer fundraiser, my father’s cancer has not subsided. However, his determination to overcome and defeat this disease is growing faster than his cancer ever will. His commitment to not let cancer get in the way of his life is inspiring to our whole family, and we hope to share that same inspiration with you all.
We have decided to participate in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk to show support for my dad, and for all the other men and families out there who have been affected by this disease. We want to help put an end to prostate cancer so no father, son, husband, brother, partner, or friend ever has to experience this.
Your donation provides much needed funds for research, education and awareness, and patient assistance for prostate cancer patients in our local community.
