Review for ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My father was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2003. He had surgery and the doctors removed his prostate and then had seven weeks of radiation. He was told that he was in remission after that. Three years later the cancer had spread into his skull. The doctors took a quarter of his skulll out and that they were sure his cancer was gone. My father passed away three months later. I became an advocate to fight this horrible disease. I came across a race, ZERO To End Prostate Cancer. That was six years ago and since then I have been getting the word out to have men informed of their Prostate. I have gone to DC to storm the Capital to get our Senators and Congressmen to help in funding research for Prostate Cancer. ZERO, has helped me and educated me on this disease, I now tell the men in my family to go to their doctor and get checked.
