BENEFITING: ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer
ORGANIZER: ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Before anything else, THANK YOU all for your time and contribution to a cause that has affected so many of my friends and their families. I've witnessed first hand how Prostate Cancer impacts a man and their family. Representing the Center for Urologic Cancer and as Clinical Director for the BluePrint for Men's Health Program, I've devoted my professional life to a cause that I feel afflicts so many men yet lacks the national awareness and support to conquer. I've joined the ZERO Prostate Cancer Endurance Team to help bring that awareness and support to the 1 in 7 men who will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer.
The fact that I am able to use this as a platform to grasp your attention regarding Prostate Cancer, I feel Iike I've already met my greater purpose. However, while I have your attention, please take away this fact, Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 38 will die of prostate cancer.
The men in your lives need your support!!!! Proceeds raised by the ZERO Prostate Cancer Endurance Team support ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer and our mission to end prostate cancer through awareness, outreach, advocacy, and research. Your support funds tomorrow’s treatments, today! Ending prostate cancer takes investments on all fronts. ZERO is committed to advancing research through advocacy and direct contributions to research while offering financial assistance to patients, early detection, and education programs. Ninety-eight cents of every dollar goes toward ZERO’s programs and activities.
Thank you all for your contribution and any level of support you may have to offer!!! See you all at the finish line!!
