Your help is needed!!
« on: January 09, 2006, 07:43:21 PM »
The following is a shameless plug, but here goes anyway;

I am a 42 year old husband, father of a nine year old boy.  I am an avid disc golfer and I have Prostate Cancer.  Yes, 42 and I have advance stage Prostate Cancer. All the details of my case are in my blog, a link to it can be found at http://www.flhw.org

Why should you care?  Because one in every six of you will get Prostate Cancer before you die!  What can you do?  If there is no family history and you are 45 or over, get tested.  If there is a family history and you are over 35, get tested!

The test is a simple blood test!

For more information go to http://www.flhw.org

Help support research necessary to find a cure!

Thanks for letting me get in a plug!

Every 2.25 minutes a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Every 19 minutes a man, dies from the disease.

Wow, I'm really sorry to hear that Bradly.  It looks like you have a pretty good foundation started there.  Cancer is some nasty stuff my Uncle on my moms side just found out he had Prostate Cancer a two weeks before Christmas.  It can happen to anyone :(

Keep up the good work, and keep fighting!

Dennis let your Uncle know that if he needs any help, answers etc. to let me know, I'd be glad to help!
