Dear family, friends and colleagues,
For those of you who do not know my story, I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer just over 10 years ago. It was the biggest wake-up call of my life. My cancer diagnosis taught me that life is precious and I needed to start living in the moment, cherish every single day, have fun and make great memories. After my diagnosis, I decided very quickly to have surgery and have my prostate removed. Looking back, I don't think I took advantage of all the resources available to the thousands of men that are stricken with this disease every year. This is one of the many reasons I joined the Board of Directors of UsTOO International in 2018 and became involved in the education and support of others that are dealing with Prostate Cancer.
UsToo helps men with prostate cancer learn to fight this disease. The power of UsTOO is in helping men and those who love them, transform resignation into determination and fear into hope!
Last year, I participated in Sea Blue's Chicago 5k charity run - it was an inspirational and also a therapeutic experience. This year, when the race takes place on September 9, 2018, I will be out of the country so I plan to run the course the week before. This is my first year asking for donations to support this amazing organization, so I hope you can help me reach my fundraising goal.
Thank you for your support,
