Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and his colleagues on the Town Board recently joined with Edward Randall and Joseph Cosgriff, both of ‘Fans for the Cure,’ to proclaim the month of September as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. ‘Fans for the Cure’ is a nonprofit organization founded by Edward in 2003, after his own diagnosis of the disease, to promote prostate cancer awareness and focus on the importance of testing in achieving early detection and best outcomes.
“Early detection is vital when it comes to prostate cancer, and thanks to both Edward and Joseph thousands of men have been screened for this deadly disease who may have otherwise not been,” said Supervisor Saladino. “We thank you for your commitment to the betterment of men’s health education and awareness, and for the countless lives you continue to positively impact in the fight to end cancer.”
Since the start of the charity’s annual Baseball Road Trip in 2007, ‘Fans for the Cure’ has taken part in over 1,200 prostate cancer awareness days and nights at MLB and Minor League ballparks, as well as football stadiums and hockey arenas throughout the country.
