August 18, 2009 Who Do You Race For?















MY NAME IS BRETT TROIA and I AM A PROSTATE CANCER SURVIVOR!

Help me raise funds and awareness for The Prostate Cancer Foundation while competing in the IRONMAN FLORIDA on November 7, 2009.

Please follow the link below to donate to my cause; <http://athletes.kintera.org/2009triathlon/bretttroia?faf=1&e=2422136044> to visit my personal web page and help me in my efforts to support Prostate Cancer Foundation
Brett Troia is "raising awareness and funds to change the face of prostate cancer"

As you may be aware, I was diagnosed Dec 3, 2008 with prostate cancer. I have since had a robotic prostatectomy, been diagnosed cancer free and well on my way to a full recovery. This year I will be "racing for the cure" with Athletes for a Cure in the Florida IRONMAN Triathlon on 11/07/2009. In addition, I am committed to supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation by setting a fundraising goal of $10,000 for prostate cancer research.
Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer in America, affecting one in six men. Men are 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than women are to be diagnosed with breast cancer.

Athletes for a Cure, a program of the Prostate Cancer Foundation, is a new fundraising and awareness program to assist individual athletes in their quest to raise money for better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer. The Prostate Cancer Foundation is the world’s largest philanthropic source of support for prostate cancer research with a simple, yet urgent goal: to find better treatments and a cure for recurrent prostate cancer.
I am dedicated to this cause, this race and hope that you will support me in reaching my fundraising goal.

  2. Hey,
    We will see you on the starting line (or beach as the case may be). I'm hosting a party for 4 or 5 bloggers out there doing IMFL on Wednesday night at the Sunbird condos (down the beach from the Boardwalk).
    Check out my blog for more details.
    In any event, good luck

  5. Thanks for maintaining this inspiring blog! Your story of survival is truly uplifting, seeing as my dad was recently diagnosed and I know how scary it is to have a loved one re-discovering how to live a healthy lifestyle and extend life after being diagnosed with a disease like prostate cancer. Keep your spirits up, and your body active!

  6. Whether your prostate is inflamed or healthy, where other remedies, remedies, medications and surgical remedies haven't effective this stimulation may well be a healthy practice that keeps your essential, sexual gland functioning fantastically. It's also a romantic method of a guy and lady to talk about their sexual encounters together. The main benefit for couples is much more satisfying sex, since the man's all around health remains restored. Mixing holistic concepts together with prostate massage gives the finest results. Sensual massage is also known to improve prostate health/

  7. Thanks for this inspiring blog. Your story, journey, and dedication in raising awareness about the disease in quite commendable. My grandfather passed away from prostate cancer few years ago and I must say it was not an easy road to travel. I wish you all the best in your endeavors and continue to spread the word.
