In September of 1993 at the age of 46, Doyle Minton was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He’d been feeling sluggish for a while, but at the time did not go to the doctor often. However, his wife made him see his physician, where he discovered that his PSA was high. In October of that same year, Doyle received a radical prostatectomy and has remained cancer-free ever since. While the diagnosis was a scary time for him and his wife, he is thankful to have caught his cancer early.
I appreciate very much what ZERO is doing. I do hope they can find a cure.
Doyle is a frequent attendee at the ZERO Run/Walk in Greensboro. When speaking to other men about the disease, he always gives this advice: Get your regular check-ups. It doesn’t matter your age; talk to your doctor about your risk and a PSA test.
The advancements and improvements made in the treatment of prostate cancer since I was diagnosed have been fantastic. I am so thankful there are organizations like ZERO striving to end this disease.
