Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure

August 22, 2014 was Ed Randall's Fans for the Cure with the Columbus Clippers at Huntington Park. Fans for the Cure teams up with Minor League Baseball to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Before the game the Columbus Clipper signed a BLUE bat to be GIVEN AWAY that night. 
No Obligation or Purchase necessary! 




Ray (my husband) will be a 5 year prostate cancer Survivor on October 12, 2014. He was diagnosed on June 19, 2009 with an aggressive form of  prostate cancer. We were hoping that the day of the Prostatectomy there would be no more camer but that was nto the case. It had escaped the prostate and into the Lymph-nodes.

ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Columbus 2014

Prostate Cancer Survivors, Caregivers, Friends United

Have you been diagnosed or know someone with prostate cancer and are on Facebook? This is my Facebook group that maybe be helpful to you. When my husband was diagnosed June 19, 2009 it was like information overload of all the information that I was finding. Suggestions were to become students of prostate cancer.

With my group we share everything prostate related news, treatment options, encouragement, support and events.

Please feel free to share with others. It helps to let them know they are not ALONE in their Journey with prostate cancer.
