14-year prostate cancer survivor

September is National Prostate Awareness Month

“Coulda,

Woulda,

Shoulda”

 

Growing up in the 60’s, I often heard the phrase “coulda, woulda, shoulda” from my grandparents when I purposely came up with excuses to avoid carrying out my duties, chores and the responsibilities assigned to me.

 

I knew there were disciplinary consequences when they were ignored, overlooked and not completed in a timely manner. Yes, costly repercussions!! What I was being taught at an early age was life is filled with expectations and time restraints.

 

This became another life lesson and teaching tool for me to stop dragging my feet by putting off tomorrow what could and should be done today. 

 

I’ve seen and heard this same metaphor used by men in regards to their prostate health, especially those men who come into our organization with late stage diagnosis or terminally ill. Are we waiting until late in life to take care of health situations that could have been taken care of but we started relying on excuses? After the excuses we live with the negative outcomes and regrets from them. Excuses have become a part of our everyday lives and it works well for many of us but in the world of prostate cancer, excuses can be like playing Russian roulette with a loaded gun. Excuses can cost you your life.

 

As we enter another week during September National Prostate Awareness Month, don’t allow excuses and the phrase coulda, woulda, shoulda to be a decision maker in regard to your prostate health. Have a conversation with your doctor “today” and talk about screening options. 

 

“Excuses are tools of the incompetence used to build bridges to nowhere and monuments of nothingness and those who used them seldom specialize in anything else.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The host of the webinar, Dr. David Bryan is Mellve's doctor.

Take a listen as Dr. Bryan shares insights about prostate cancer diagnosis and treatment options.

 

 

 

ZERO RUN/WALK

-VENUE CHANGE-

September 18, 2021

Because of the uncertainty of the pandemic, and under the guidance of ZERO’s Medical Advisory Chair with the vision to keep prostate cancer patients and their families safe,

 

THE ST. LOUIS RUN/WALK has moved to a VIRTUAL EVENT ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18 STARTING AT 10:30 A.M. ST. LOUIS TIME.

 

THIS ALSO MEANS THE ZERO VIRTUAL EVENT WILL BE THE TEN PROSTATE CANCER SUPPORT GROUP MEETING.

 

The virtual event event will be hosted solely through the Charge Running app for all registered participants. The Charge Running app is available through the App Store and Google Play.

 

Led by a ZERO team member, you will be able to virtually participate in the Run/Walk, communicate with other participants through the app’s chat feature, share your stories and photos, and continue to fundraise for the event.

 

If you have already registered, your registration will automatically be switched from in-person to virtual, so there is no need for any further action by you at this time. Participants who qualified for the event t-shirt will now be mailed their shirts. 

 

Watch this helpful video all about the Charge Running app and how you can connect virtually to help ZERO out prostate cancer. 

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Mellve at 314-280-2572 or contact ZERO via email at races@zerocancer.org or through our Run/Walk Hotline at 202-303-3110.
