Welcome to My Personal Page
In the United States, approximately 181,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed annually1. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, and accounts for ~11% of all new cancer cases in US and ~27% of new cancer cases in men.1 It is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men. In 2013, there were an estimated 2,850,000 men living with prostate cancer in the US.2 The death rate from prostate cancer among African Americans is over twice as high as that among non-Hispanic white men.2 Approximately 10-20% of newly diagnosed prostate cancer cases involve locally advanced disease and recent patterns suggest that an increasing percentage of men will present with high volume metastatic disease that will be hormone/castration-sensitive.1
I'm participating in the Chattanooga 70.3 Half Ironman because I want to put an end to the suffering of prostate cancer and I need your support!
Help us get one step closer to Generation ZERO - the first generation of men free from prostate cancer by donating o fund research, patient financial assistance, and early detection, and educational programs.
Please support me by making a tax deductible contribution today! And as I cross the finish line in Chattanooga, you'll feel proud knowing you helped keep families together and saves lives
