I’m taking on The Long Run!

The Long Run

In late 2018, when I was 55, I had what I thought was a routine blood test, it showed elevated PSA levels and at that point my doctor decided to refer me to see a specialist. Back then, I believed this was merely a formality as it had been some years since I last visited to my GP. After a few more tests and a surgical biopsy, I received a call on Australia Day 2019.  My urologist confirmed my worst fears and a diagnosis I was not prepared for. On April 3rd I had my prostate removed brobotic prostatectomy surgeryThe biopsy also discovered a large amount of what my surgeon described as very aggressive cells which fortunately for me was discovered early. If left for another 12 months, it might have been too late for me, my family and my future.  I now know that this is not an uncommon story but at the time, it was a lot to comprehend.

The physical recovery took about 12 weekssome of the side effects of the surgery will last much longer and some will remain forever.  This is where the story is different for others.   Some will improve over time, but others may not and can suffer deficiencies in their quality of life, mental healthpersonal relationships, amongst others.  

This is my motivation for doing the The Long Run.  To provide much needed funds for the ongoing support for men,their families and loved ones struggling to come to terms with the aftermath of this horrendous disease. I am and will always be so grateful of the support offered to me by my family and friends during my recovery, but we need more for those who battle this alone.

I have set my target at $2000 and I will I travel the 72kms in September not by land but on my Stand Up Paddle Boardwhich has been my greatest escape and during my recovery. I am asking you for donations to help me achieve this goal. No amount is too small and I would like to thank you in advance for your generous support.
