Dozens of people took to Genesee Valley Park on Saturday to make a stance against prostate cancer.
The fourth annual S.E.A. Blue Ribbon two-mile walk raises awareness about the disease and local treatment options.
Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter has been impacted by the disease himself.
“Two years ago this month, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer,” said Baxter. “I had zero symptoms. I was running a half marathon that same weekend when I was diagnosed. But because of a test that my doctor gave me… two years later I’m perfectly clean of cancer and perfectly healthy. I just want to share that with other men.”
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers found in American men. Statistics show that 1 out of 7 men will be impacted by prostate cancer at some point in their lives. — ROCHESTER FIRST
