Abiraterone, Zero Cancer

Another drug in the pipeline, abiraterone, is showing encouraging results in men who have exhausted standard treatment options. This is for patients who exhibit evidence of metastatic cancer so it's a late stage efforts. It's drugs like this that we're hoping for to combat prostate cancer.

Zero Cancer....go to www.zerocancer.org and check it out. I had an awesome conversation with the CEO, Skip Lockwood yesterday and I'm committed to play a very active role in helping raise awareness about PC. What is Zero? you'll have to visit the site to find out.

1 out of 6 men will get prostate cancer....if you're a male 40 or over, get your PSA check.

The bottom line is this, getting tested is nothing more than getting a blood test. Even if you have no symptoms, men should get checked at the age of 40 (according to my Urologist, Judd Moul, chief of urology at Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center)

Be safe and for no other reason than for peace of mind.

that's it, my rant for the day.

Oh, hey, 72 degrees today in Charlotte...it's about time.

later :)
