Last week I had an opportunity to golf in the 5th Annual Faith, Love, Hope, Win Foundation golf event. It was a perfect day outside and you could tell people were really pleased to be a part of the event.
The mission of the Faith, Love, Hope, Win Foundation is to win the battle against advanced prostate cancer (check it out: http://www.flhw.org/).
While we have busy schedules, not every activity, meeting or event is filled with the passion shown by David, the Event Chair and all the others who helped set up the day.
The statistics are startling for prostate cancer:
Every 2.25 minutes a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Every 19 minutes, a man dies from the disease--that means during the five hours of golf, more than 15 men died from prostate cancer.
A quote from the Faith, Love, Hope, Win website reads:
When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
Certainly, something that we would apply in our professional and personal lives.
Dr. Norm - thank you for letting us know about the event. Ginger, Tim, Bob and I really thought it was a special event. We are glad we could be a part of it.
As always, I look forward to hearing from you.
