My SEA Blue 2020 Fundraising Page

I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in May 2016. I had my prostate removed on June 24, 2016 and have been cancer free since.

I have run the SEA Blue Prostate Cancer run since September 2016. I will be running a virtual 5K this year because Prostate Cancer is NOT virtual, it is real;

Know the Facts About Prostate Cancer:

Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin, male-specific cancer in the U.S., affecting one in nine men

Approximately 174,650 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2020

About 31,620 men will die this year from prostate cancer (87 men every day); prostate cancer is the second largest cancer killer of men following lung cancer

Prostate cancer has no symptoms until it’s advanced

The disease is always treatable; but if detected early, prostate cancer is often curable

African American men have the highest incidence of prostate cancer; they are 60 percent more likely to develop the disease and more than twice as likely to die from it compared to Caucasian men

Men with a family history of prostate cancer are at higher risk for developing prostate cancer

Men who served in the military during the Vietnam and Korean wars who were exposed to Agent Orange are at a higher risk for developing prostate cancer (and other cancers/diseases)

Screening for prostate cancer includes a PSA (prostate specific antigen) blood test and a DRE (digital rectal exam); a biopsy is required to diagnose prostate cancer

I hope the above facts encourage you to do two things:
