MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT ON HUMANKIND
It took me 13 months after my diagnosis to go public. It was at that time, with my wife’s encouragement, I published my first blog about my journey; it touched lives around the world!
After a very successful fund-raising campaign and completing my long-term, post-surgery goal of competing in the IRONMAN World Championship in Hawaii, my focus shifted to education and advocacy. I am Board Member at ZERO, Patient Advocate Board member at Cancer U, and Mentor & Peer Reviewer for the DoD’s (Department of Defense) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs http://cdmrp.army.mil/cwg/stories/2018/tom_hulsey_profile. I was a volunteer at the Baylor Scott & White Cancer Health & Wellness Center and recently published The Winning Mindset That Saved My Life. Net proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to ZERO.
The Winning Mindset That Saved My Life has a second bottom line; an impact where the book is leverage, a tool for visibility; a means of expressing a higher message and platform. The larger purpose or calling of the book will enable me to create awareness and generate research dollars. That said, I would be most grateful if you helped me "make a positive impact on Humankind" and end this horrible disease. Your donation is tax-deductible (ZERO is a 501(c)(3) philanthropic organization).
CHARITY NAVIGATOR ranks ZERO a four out of four-star organization. Out of the 18,000-plus disease-based organizations in the U.S, ZERO is one of only 48 nonprofits with an operating budget of over $3.5M while garnering a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. A key financial performance metric is the percent of the charity's total expenses spent on the programs and services it delivers – 89.8%.
It is widely reported that cancer mortality rates have dropped; down nearly two percent since 2015. On the surface, it’s a good step toward minimizing the pain and suffering endured by many families, but one important detail that the media and medical advisors have glossed over is that prostate cancer deaths jumped 10 percent last year. It’s the largest jump in prostate cancer deaths in a decade, according to the American Cancer Society. A man dies every 18 minutes from prostate cancer.
I’ve grown to appreciate the value of serving a greater cause than my own self-interest; making a positive impact on Humankind! Your donation will help fund research, patient programs that go directly to helping men and their families, free testing, educational programs, and more.
