Many thanks to all the musicians who have celebrated Dan's music with Grass Roots
around the country since 2008, donating proceeds to the
Prostate Cancer Foundation in Dan's memory.
To each and every man....
I cannot encourage you strongly enough to get a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) and DRE (Digital Rectal Exam) a test EVERY YEAR.
The medical community suggests this for men over 50, but men with a family history of prostate cancer, and African American men should start getting tested at age 45. Men with two of these risk factors should start getting tested at age 40.
The PSA test is a simple blood test...it only takes a minute or two. The DRE, okay, every man squirms at the thought of this exam, but hey, it too takes only a minute or two, and IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.
Prostate cancer can be very slow growing or very aggressive, but detected early while it is still confined to the prostate gland, it can usually be treated and cured successfully.
Once it spreads beyond the prostate it is called Advanced Prostate Cancer. At this point it becomes imminently more life threatening and harder to treat. Do yourself and your loved ones a huge favor and GET CHECKED REGULARLY. I promise you, you DON’T want to go through what I'm going through if you can avoid it.
Education and awareness are key. I urge you to follow the link below to the Prostate Cancer Foundation web site and read up on how best to protect yourself and reduce your likelihood of developing this terrible disease.
