- Sep 5, 2014All my friends, family and fans know that I am an advocate for educating men and their families about the importance of yearly screenings for prostate cancer. I am a prostate cancer survivor and due to early detection and treatment, I am blessed to be cancer free. I share the journey that my family and I are on whether it's in an interview or when I am in concert. In fact, I wrote and recorded a song, "If I Believe," which is a testimony to my faith. Here is a link to view my life journey which inspired the song: http://youtu.be/vfFdKNhUc4Y
September is an important month on my calendar as it is cancer awareness month for a number of different types of cancer including prostate cancer. I am proud to be participating in the Stand Up 2 Cancer live telecast on Friday, September 5, 2014 which will be broadcast on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and more than 30 U.S. and Canadian networks including HBO, Showtime, Bravo, Oxygen, E!, TNT, VH1 reaching more than 100 countries. You can register for a chance to receive a call from me and other celebrities via telephone or Skype during the event at werecallingyou.org. For more information on this important program, please go to standup2cancer.org.
I have taken control of my health and understand the importance of having yearly checkups that include a prostate cancer screening. I have worked with the Prostate Cancer Foundation and also did workshops around the country with Janssen Biotech for their Making Awareness a Priority (M.A.P) initiative all in an effort to let people know that prostate cancer affects the entire family. My message is the same... take control of your health and spread the word.
Please tune into the Stand Up 2 Cancer live telecast on Friday, September 5, 2014 at 8:00 pm est/7:00 pm CST and take a look at the video below to see how I am helping raise awareness about prostate cancer.
Love, Charlie Wilson
