Prostate Cancer Awareness Walk

September 18, 2011 6:39:31 AM PDT
September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and one event will bring out hundreds in Chicago to raise awareness and research funds.

That event is the 7th Annual Chicago SEA Blue Prostate Cancer Run/Walk.

Co-founder of the walk, Chicago-area member of Us TOO International and the Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network, Shirley Grey joined us in our ABC7 studio.

Grey understands the critical role loved ones play in the lives of men with advanced prostate cancer, as her husband Herbie was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1991 and died of the disease in 2008. Grey has teamed up with Janssen Biotech, Inc., to raise awareness of resources on My Prostate Cancer Roadmap. The website is published by Janssen Biotech, Inc, which is solely responsible for its content.

At the 3K Walk and 5K Run event, all men can get free prostate-specific antigen (PSA) testing on-site.
