That first step is simple! We need to follow our sisters examples and simply get checked! The amount of deaths frrom Breast Cancer has gone down IMMENSLY since 1990 because women have taken that first step of getting checked so serious. Although only 1 in 10,000 under age 40 will be diagnosed, the rate shoots up to 1 in 38 for ages 40 to 59, and 1 in 15 for ages 60 to 69. In fact, more than 65% of all prostate cancers are diagnosed in men over the age of 65. If prostate cancer is caught in the first 5 years the chances of being cured are huge compared to several years further down the road. So please, if you know somone that hasn't had their exam and has any signs of PC or is within the more "dangerous" age groups, push them to get that exam.
The next step is what I am doing now. We need money to continue research and look for the cure! If all you can afford to donate is a dollar that's a dollar more than what they had before.
I'll be starting my "MO" (that what a moustache is called in Austrailia where the fundraiser began) on November 1st and growing it through the month. I'll be sure to post updates of how it's looking and if things are coming along with the fundraiser.
Finally, there are mutiple ways to donate but i think that the two most convienent are as follows:
