Thanks for clicking through to learn more. My goal is to help improve education and knowledge at least through my network of friends and colleagues. As I have said, “If this disease can strike me, then it can also affect you”. Once again, I would encourage you to be proactive in requesting testing from your family Doctor as a matter of course, the next time you go in for a check up. This will involve a DRE (Digital rectal Exam) or a blood test- PSA.
My second purpose in disclosing my diagnosis is to do something positive. That is help raise some $$ to help contribute to those scientists who work tirelessly on the science that will help to;
- Find the Cause
- Find the Cure
The Coalition to Cure Prostate Cancer was established by Don Konantz from Vancouver. His goal is to raise a dollar and donate a dollar. That is to say every dollar that is raised goes directly to scientific research without attracting any overhead. That from my standpoint is a compelling reason to evaluate this charity and consider making a donation.
Thanks for your support.
