My first job in the healthcare industry was in Oncology.
I worked for a very progressive Radiation Oncologist who specialized in prostate cancer. He treated other cancers but his primary focus was on prostate cancer with 90% of his patients having that diagnosis.
When a patient is receiving radiation treatments, they typically have treatment every day for a specific amount of time (2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks) and some times running concurrently with chemotherapy.
During my tenure, I got to know not only the patients who are battling cancer but their families. It was so heartwarming watching the unofficial support groups in the waiting room and the friendships blossom. It was also heartbreaking when a long time fighter loses their battle. We became so close with our patients and their families that our hearts broke right along with theirs.
It's so important to remind the men in our lives to get screened for prostate cancer! With that being said- I am sharing with you a great way to win $2,000. $1,000 for you, $1,000 for the man in your life.
