Carolina Strong: Cancer survivor spreads hope, awareness

Bob Lane, a prostate cancer survivor, is using his experience to raise awareness and support others facing the disease. After being diagnosed with prostate cancer twice, Lane decided to give back. He spends two days a week at Urology Specialists of the Carolinas, talking with fellow cancer patients and offering them support. Recognizing the lack of community around prostate cancer, Lane sits by the elevator, ready to help others navigate their journey. He's now cancer-free and working with Nurse Director Tracy Peck on a prostate cancer awareness event. 

Lane believes that raising awareness and encouraging early detection are crucial in the fight against prostate cancer, which remains the second leading cause of cancer death in men. His efforts bring him a sense of fulfillment as he knows he may have made a difference in someone's life.
