It’s that time again. This will be the seventh walk I've participated in since Don passed away. It's hard to believe it was back in Dec. 2012 that the cancer finally got the best of him. This event was important to him and to myself. He was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of prostate cancer in late 1999. He was a trooper, he fought it every which way he could. He helped others who were dealing with their treatments by participating in a blog passing along information as to how to deal with the cancer and new treatments. One month before he died he was up in front of an UsToo Group discussing his long struggle and trying to give others some encouragement to not give up.
I’m “stepping up” for prostate cancer! My participation in the SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk/Run on September 15 will help Us TOO International to provide support, education and advocacy at no charge for those affected by prostate cancer. One in seven men will develop this terrible disease in his lifetime.
Please honor the important men in your life by contributing to this very important cause.
