Prostate Cancer Awareness With The Pony Express
If you or someone you know is diagnosed of prostate cancer, then this piece of article would invaluable to you. It relates to an awareness rally recently carried out for the victims and survivors of prostate cancer in the United States – a memorial journal, which the names of victims and survivors of this ‘silent killer’ are carried out in motorcycle rally around the 50 states. This is an interesting development because it helps to create more awareness for prostate cancer. It also helps in raising funds for the cause of prostate. The following is a full extract of this event as published on the MMD Newswire website recently:
The Prostate Cancer Pony Express, the first ever 50-state charity motorcycle relay rally is riding to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer. The riders are carrying a memorial journal containing the names of prostate cancer victims and prostate cancer survivors. Anyone can submit a victim or survivor name to be entered into the memorial journal.
To add a name, just visit the Memorial Journal signup page at http://eepurl.com/h6fI2 and provide the name and state of residence.
Why Prostate Cancer Awareness Matters
Prostate cancer strikes one of every six men. According to the National Cancer Society, there are over 240,000 new cases of prostate cancer diagnosed in 2011, and nearly 34,000 men died from the disease in 2011.
Prostate cancer is a “silent killer,” since there generally are few symptoms until the disease is advanced. “Prostate cancer is highly treatable if caught prior to metastasis, but detection and diagnosis are critical,” Robert Hess said.
The daily ride schedule from March 17 to the final leg to the White House on September 9th is posted on the Internet at http://bit.ly/2012ProstateCancerPonyExpressDailyRoute.
