My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Prostate cancer

My motivation to sport the filthy ‘stache this year just got a bit more personal.

Due to a number of factors, our family doctor has been watching my PSA levels for a couple of years now.

Early this summer I was sent for an ultrasound to get a different look at things going on “down there”. The results quickly led to another blood sample and ultimately to a biopsy and the “Call” on August 19 that I was not entirely prepared for.

Prostate Cancer.

I didn’t know what a Gleason score of 6 was or what the differences were between stage 1 and other categories of prostate cancer, but after a good cry by the river that day I was determined to find out.

What I found out was that the treatment options and advancements that have been made in treating prostate cancer and men’s mental health, thanks in part to generous donations, are amazing and my early diagnosis and path forward are a good thing.

I can’t thank enough the many layers of support that I have been given, starting with my wife and family as well as my friends, co-workers, my doctors, and the staff at the Prostate Cancer Center,

Gents, please get your bloodwork done, and everyone please consider a donation so that other men in your life can get support and stay healthy!

Thanks to everyone for the amazing response to date. To the anonymous donors, a big thank you! I have tried to connect personally with each donor but would like you to know how much the support means to me.
Also, an update that isn't getting recorded on the site. I have had 7 men commit to me to get some testing or to follow up on some health related issues. The value of that cannot be measured.
