My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Prostate cancer
Testicular cancer

Globally, more than 1.4M men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. Movember is working to halve the number of deaths from prostate cancer by 2030, and I want to help them get there.

I’m a surgeon in a small town in northern Canada and I spend a lot of my time caring for men with prostrate cancer and prostate issues even though it is not in my specialty. I think men’s prostate (and testicular) health is often under appreciated in comparison to breast cancer health and I would like to raise awareness for my patients and my male colleagues going through the fight. As my friend/surgical colleague said, “life without a prostate is different!” And as someone fully aware of the changes pelvic surgery has on lifestyle and personal lives, I want to help spread the word, and support these men in their struggle. Let's stop men dying too young.

I plan to run the Chicago Marathon in October 2020 to raise awareness for prostate cancer issues. Pledging your support through this page will allow me to reach my goal of $3000 to help research into and management of men's health. I might not be able to grow a luxurious Fu Manchu, but I CAN do this!
