I recently was informed that I am to honored with the 2014 Harry Pinchot Award from the Prostate Cancer Research Institute.  The award recognizes outstanding dedication and support to the prostate cancer community. I am pleased and flattered to be one of this year’s receptients.

I have been told that one reason I have received this award is because of the overwhelming support that many of my blog readers demonstrated in support of my nomination.  I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who actively supported my nomination.

The award will be formally presented to me in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 6th at the Gala Ball during the upcoming PCRI patient conference.

I want to thank all of you for supporting me in my efforts and more importantly for continuing to support each other as we go on this journey together.

I have written a very special “call to action” as a brief acceptance speech and I will publish it on the blog after the 6th.

Again, thank you for your support.
