My Walk in the Fight Against Bladder Cancer

 Your wallet will never get bigger than your heart -- T.D. Jakes 
On Sunday, May 21, 2017 the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) will hold it's annual walk/run on behalf of the 500,000 people living with bladder cancer across the United States, and I can speak from experience -- because I was one of them. In August of 2016, I was diagnosed with stage 2 muscle-invasive bladder cancer.

Thankfully, after 4 rounds of chemotherapy, several hospital stays (one lasting as long as 24-days) and a few surgeries (including the removal of my bladder), I give praises to The Most High for I am cancer-free.  I still, however, have at least one surgery to go (due to complications) to repair my neo-bladder (which is a bladder reconstructed from the small intestine). These last 9 months have been a long road, but I am ever grateful and feel terrific.

Bladder cancer is the 5th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States.  It impacts both men and women of all ages and races. One in 42 people will be diagnosed with bladder cancer during their lifetime. Bladder cancer also has a recurrence rate of 50-80 percent and because it requires life-long surveillance, it is the most expensive cancer to treat on a per patient basis.

Whatever you can give will help BCAN in providing education and resources for these bladder cancer patients.

I really appreciate your support. Please click here to learn how to get involved.
