In some ways I’ve felt like I’ve battled cancer my entire life. My mother lost her life to cancer, as did both her parents. All four of my sisters had been diagnosed with some form of cancer, though none have lost their lives to the dreadful disease. With all that said, it came as no surprise to me, when, in late October of 2011, a routine physical was followed up later by a phone call that I felt was inevitable. My doctor at the University of Kansas Medical Center told me I had prostate cancer. .
During the summer of 2018, at the age of only 37 years old, I went in to visit my primary care physician, for my first official appointment since moving to Austin in 2017. Thanks to my wife whom I’ve been with for fifteen years, I have become accustomed to appreciating regular checkups. During this initial appointment, my PCP, Dr. Ann Hathcock, asked me a series of routine questions related to family history. My grandmother, at that time was suffering from stage 4 breast cancer and there were several members of my family on my father’s side who had experienced some sort of cancer. She entered that information and ran a series of blood tests when she did my panel. One of those tests was a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test. Prior to meetin.
Some of the largest cancer institutions may be looking at the latest facts and figures about the disease with rose-colored glasses. Many have touted an overall projected reduction in cancer deaths by 2.2 percent this year, and have also stated little concern about a forecasted increase in prostate cancer deaths, despite death tolls from the disease in 2020 will be the highest they've been in two decades. Some ⁠— including opponents to the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test ⁠— trumpet breakthroughs in treatment over the last decade as the primary driver for a reduction in prostate cancer deaths. .
“I have good news and bad news,” shared Ed’s doctor. “The good news is that the cancer has not spread outside the prostate. The bad news is that the cancer is aggressive.”Ropizah and Ed were shocked by those words, and also a bit confused. Earlier that week they’d been told that Ed’s cancer had a Gleason score of 6, a score given to cancers that are believed to be low risk. So Ed’s first question to the doctor was, “How come a Gleason score of 6 is aggressive?” Apparently incorrect information had been given to Ed by the doctor’s office. They will never forget the day, Thursday, March 21, 2019 when they were told that Ed was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer, with a Gleason score of 9 and with a PSA of 10.3. .
The holiday season can be a joyous time of year, but for those grieving, it can be incredibly challenging. For some, this may be the first holiday season without their loved one and the idea of “celebrating” could feel like torture. Putting up decorations can be a reminder of those that are no longer with us. Many families may even feel like skipping the holidays all together. Even when death is expected, nothing can really prepare for the loss of someone you love. Grief is not linear and is an essential part of healing. If you or someone you know is grieving this holiday season, here are some suggestions on how to cope during this time. .
As a chapter director, I have the privilege of being the eyes, ears, and a resource in the community for ZERO. I meet countless individuals with a personal connection to the cause and I’d say 99% of them were smacked in the face by a prostate cancer diagnosis out of nowhere; world flipped upside down. Thankfully, ZERO is there for them with open arms to provide support, events to give back to, and activities to share their stories and make an impact to save lives. As I wrap up 2019, I wanted to share several of my most memorable moments from this amazing year. .
With eight Run/Walks and just under a quarter of $1 Million collectively raised for research and programs for men and their families suffering from prostate cancer - it was an INCREDIBLE year of growth for the Mid-Atlantic Chapter at ZERO! As the Chapter Director, I had the privilege of working with the most amazing host partners, sponsors, ZERO Champions, and of course, the participants in eight cities that spanned the eastern seaboard of the United States, as north as Pennsylvania and as south as North Carolina. With each Run/Walk bringing unique experiences, heartwarming memories, and emotional stories with equal tears and laughs, it was with great difficulty that I narrowed down and gathered my favorite photos from each Run/Walk and the.
2019 has been a busy year for our Journey to ZERO blog series! So many men and their families have taken the time to record their cancer journeys and we thank them for their willingness to do so. We've listed some of our most read blogs as well as some of our favorites. Make sure to set aside time to read, or re-read, them when you get a chance. .
What a great ride this year’s race season has been. I have to say I was a little nervous coming from the healthcare research field to work for a nonprofit, but I can honestly say I have the best of both worlds being here at ZERO! In my new role as East Coast Metro Chapter Director, I’m still able to have many of the same experiences I had before in my last job: witnessing the evolution of prostate cancer research, interacting with those affected by the disease, and educating patients, families, practices, and community members. ZERO’s Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Event Series brings everyone together and is a reminder to all involved that no one has to fight alone and together we are stronger! At every event, I took a moment to look around and
This was my first year managing Team ZERO, and not being an avid runner or member of the running community, I had no idea what to expect. From the first event, I was so inspired by the dedication of the athletes, not only in their training, but in their dedication to raising funds for prostate cancer patients and their families. They have almost convinced me that with some training I could run a race with them! :). .
Wow! This year’s Grow & Give to End Prostate Cancer campaign was a record breaking success thanks to more than 750 participants from 80 teams worldwide putting down their razors and growing sweet mustaches and beards to raise awareness and funds to fuel ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer’s patient support, advocacy and research programs. From Parsippany, N.J., to Portugal, participants raised over $170,000 for men and their families! Isn’t that stache-tastic?! .

I’m Jeffrey Wilde. I’m a husband, a father, a grandfather, and a prostate cancer survivor. My life has always been an adventure, from running marathons, doing triathlons, cycling and swimming, and even raising two adult children. But these days it looks a little bit different now since I am raising my three year old son Deacon. Now we go on his types of adventures that will help him mind grow. .
Hot is how most would probably describe the Texas Chapter Run/Walks this year. Despite the heat, friends, families, caregivers, and survivors still came out to support ZERO. Being new to ZERO, I finally had a chance to see the Texas races first hand and meet so many passionate individuals. Trying to narrow down my top moments is hard but I will try my best. .
I am always fighting for all men battling prostate cancer! Whether it be at one of my shows or during an Uber ride to the airport, my message of early detection is one I will continue to push.
