We all have challenges on a daily basis. Some are over-whelming, such as the COVID-19 Pandemic. Imagine hearing your doctor say that you have prostate cancer, on your birthday no less! In my case, it was at the top of my list. I have been extremely fortunate. Many of my friends and colleagues that are part of this “reluctant brotherhood” have not been as fortunate. I witnessed my best friend lost his 4-year battle to prostate cancer just prior to my diagnosis – it was gut-wrenching. Prostate cancer is terribly underfunded (and misunderstood) compared to other cancers because men do not talk about it. They do not engage because of the personal nature of the problem. They are embarrassed and it forces isolation. I was there. I did not tell anyone other than family and a few close friends for over a year.
Together, we can END prostate cancer.Donate Today
