Spread the word

There are plenty of popular blogs, like the Fat Cyclist, where ordinary people use their blogs as a public diary for personal motivation, but the blog quickly transforms into something larger. I don’t expect that to ever happen here, but I now realize what a powerful tool blogging can be. For the second time in less than a year, an immediate family member of mine has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. While this blog may only reach a limited few, I want to encourage all the guys out there to have routine checkups and have your PSA checked once a year. It may not be something we like to talk about, but ask your dad, brother, son, or buddy when the last time they had their prostate checked, and encourage them to follow through. I’ve included a new prostate awareness link on the blog and links to a couple prostate cancer awareness groups below. Check it out and spread the word….

National Cancer Institute

Prostate Cancer Foundation

Prostate Cancer Info from the Mayo Clinic
