Who I Run For: My Dad
Within three years of his diagnosis with aggressive prostate cancer, Dick Treat lost his battle to cancer at the age of 66—leaving behind a wife, two sons, two daughters and five grandsons. Dick’s story is not uncommon. In fact, in 2012, more than 28,000 other men will lose their life to prostate cancer.
Firmly committed to curing prostate cancer, the Prostate Cancer Foundation is the leading philanthropic organization funding and accelerating research globally.
