Prostate cancer gets lost again. . .
My wife and I finally made the time to take our Alaska cruise and when we stopped in Juneau we went to see the very nice people at the Governor’s Office.
I was able to get proclamations from the governors of Virginia and South Carolina during my Tour de USA for Prostate Cancer Awareness last summer, but no such luck. They were very nice but noted that they had just released a proclamation dealing with men’s health in general and felt that would do the trick.
How can we get the boys to talk about the boys?
Our gals are absolutely fearless when it comes to talking about breast cancer. I was in the outdoor shop at the Alyeska Resort yesterday and there they were – bunches of pink cycling socks with “Save the Ta-Tas.” But nothing about prostate cancer, even though there are more new prostate cancer cases each year than breast cancer.
Should we create a “Save the Boys” campaign?
This sounds like fun, but I’m not sure what image or logo we could get away using. If you have any good ideas, send us an email or post it here on the blog.
We need some help in Juneau!
The Prostate Cancer Pony Express to the Capitol Building in Washington , DC takes place on September 18th. How about some help there in Juneau? A bicycle ride or motorcycle ride to the state capitol building would be great publicity!
Warm regards, Robert
