I'm really looking forward to participating in this great fundraising event for KCCH! This will be the first time I've participated.
The wonderful work of KCCH
strikes a special chord with me. Like many other men, I have advanced prostate cancer. I've been very fortunate to have support from my family, work and Healthworks families as well as from our Corning Rotary club. That's allowed me to work hard to beat my cancer into a remission; in my case, the cancer appears to be susceptible to the effects of exercise
[which can kill cancer cells], plus my meds [which slow the cancer cells] -- so I exercise lots!!
My favorite exercise is SWIMMING -- I swim 3.5 miles every morning. It will be fun to swim in one direction instead of all the laps ... If you're into swimming, I'm using TI swimming
So my message is simple. Please help KCCH by sponsoring my swim on July 28th
. If you swim or want to help by being a paddler, then please sign up as a volunteer to make this event the best yet.
Part II of my message is also simple. Make sure that the men in your life get an annual physical
. Advanced prostate cancer [hard to treat] can often be effectively prevented through early detection -- when it's simple prostate cancer [very treatable!].
All the Best!
I swim to live ...
... and I live to help
