“I wanted to share my story to, frankly, save other men’s lives. I discovered that very few knew anything about [prostate cancer]. Even less had had the PSA test.”
– Wayne Sticha, 64, Founder of Ride for Dads
Over the summer, we shared two interviews with PatientLikeMe members conducted by our partner Patient Power: one with psoriasis patient Lissa and another with multiple sclerosis patient Marcia. Today, against the backdrop of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, we’re pleased to present the latest Patient Power video interview with member Wayne Sticha, a prostate cancer survivor from Lindstrom, Minnesota.
Check out Wayne’s interview to learn about his prostate cancer experience as well as how he was inspired to found Ride for Dads, an annual benefit and awareness motorcycle ride now in its third year. What drives his passion for educating other men, who he says “tend to ignore the subtle signs of aging,” about prostate cancer? And what are his aspirations for this growing event?
