One in eighteen people in the United States will develop Colorectal Cancer this year. Colon Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of cancer deaths in both men and women. In 2014 136,830 will develop Colorectal Cancer and 50,310 will die from this very preventable disease. I would like to encourage all of you to take some time out of your busy schedules for a screening examination to check for early signs of this cancer.

Early detection can save your life.

Treatment of colon cancer in its earliest stages is remarkably successful, BUT, if the disease is left unchecked the chance of survival drops precipitously. I pray you will take this awareness message seriously and tell your family and friends, too. Colon cancer is one disease where a little prevention and early screening definitely saves lives.

In 2001 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer and after surgery and 6 months chemotherapy I have become one of the lucky few to survive this deadly, yet very preventable disease.
 
 
In looking for a way to make more people aware and to raise money for the cancer centers that specialize in research and treatment I fell back on my love of big game fishing and started the Florida Fish for Life billfish tournament. In 2003 we where incorporated as a 501c3 non-profit. With the support of some very dear friends who have shared my desire to give back to their communities the event has grown significantly. We continue to run it with an all volunteer staff to minimize costs and maximize our donations.

Over the twelve Year history of Florida Fish for Life we have generated over $500,000 for cancer centers in  Palm Beach Florida and Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Past donations have gone to the Southeastern Cancer Research Center of Palm Beach, the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania, the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, the Cleveland Clinic of Weston Florida, the Jupiter Medical Cancer Center Foundation and the Sari Asher Center.

We are proud to assure you that your donations go directly to support these fine institutions and the important work they are doing to isolate the causes, find a cure and treat those like me who are afflicted with colon cancer. Whether you live in these areas or not the research being done at these institutions have an affect all over the world. So please donate help them cure these Cancers.
