$1,000 For You + $1,000 For Him GIVEAWAY!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Prolaris. All opinions are my own.

1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Chances are you might know and love someone who has had or will get a prostate cancer diagnosis. Prostate cancer is the SECOND leading cause of cancer death among men. I had no idea.

So, why are we talking to you, the “prostateless”, about this cancer?

If you’re anything like me, you’re the one making everyone’s doctors appointments, doing the late night WebMD Google searches, taking care of your kids, your husband and even harassing your parents about their health. True confession? I had to BET my dad $500 that he needed knee replacements. I’m the only one who got him to the doctor. But I lost . . . he actually needed BOTH of his HIPS replaced! But a good daughter puts it all on the line right? (We called the bet a draw btw . . .)

Turns out the “best long-term care insurance in our country is a conscientious daughter” proved by a recent healthcare study by a bunch of Stanford University Fellows (more here). You’re welcome dad!

So What If I Know Someone Who Gets Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer?

Here’s the cool thing. The Prolaris Test is a prostate cancer test that provides a new measure of the aggressiveness of an individual’s prostate cancer. Getting a “Prolaris Score” will give both the patient and the physician additional information about the cancer that no other test can. That impacts the kind of treatment that person you love will get as well as the side effects and outcomes. It’s such valuable information to have.  So if you know someone with a recent diagnosis point them to Prolaris.com. They can ask their doctor about it and odds are their insurance covers it.

$1,000 For You + $1,000 For Him

Mom, you have so many titles, perhaps the most important of which is CMO. Chief Medical Officer of your household. You’re stocking the medicine cabinet, dragging out the humidifier, reminding kids “don’t scratch that”, throwing a quick multivitamin at anyone you can, and harassing your loved ones to get to the doctor. But sometimes it takes a bribe. So we’re bribing BOTH OF YOU. You and the man in your life—we’ve got a $2,000 Grand Prize up for grabs. $1000 for you, and $1000 for that man that you keep having to remind to be mindful of his health.

    I’m the worrier in the house, & I’m the one who usually researches everything, encourages the making of doctor’s appts, etc.

  2. Adam Steele 09/24/2018 at 9:14 pm

    get regular tests done

  3. Ariel C 09/24/2018 at 9:13 pm

    making sure to get quarterly check ups!

  4. Philip Lawrence 09/24/2018 at 7:26 pm

    I am the only member of my family so I worry about my own health. I follow the WebMD closely and follow my health on a daily basis. I listen carefully to my doctor and tahe my meds. Fortunately, I have not had a major health problem but I will be prepared if I do.

  5. Rust 09/24/2018 at 5:19 pm

    I’m definitely the one who searches webmd! I find the older I get the more I have to search for, but I try not to be a worrier!

  6. Cassandra D 09/24/2018 at 4:34 pm

    My cousin is. I usually stay on point with all of the information.

  7. Kristi Friesen 09/24/2018 at 1:49 pm

    I’m definitely the worrier. I try to get everybody eating healthy and taking high quality supplements.

  8. Megan H 09/24/2018 at 9:33 am

    I get my family to play outside, wash hands, and eat healthy.

  9. Katt Lewis 09/24/2018 at 4:41 am

    Health to me is everything in moderation these days. Plus I do google a lot.

  10. Nyx 09/24/2018 at 2:35 am

    i browse Web MD and other helpful pages, i am constantly in search for articles with great and useful information like this one, thank you for sharing!

  11. Kristi Weiss 09/23/2018 at 10:14 pm

    Thank you for the great information. My Grandpa passed away from prostate cancer so im always interested in reading information about it.

  12. David McCormick 09/23/2018 at 8:32 pm

    I’m the lesser worrier, but we do a lot of googling, web md-ing, and calling our peed, just to make sure!

  13. Wanda Tracey 09/23/2018 at 7:20 pm

    Thanks for all the great information in this wonderful feature. I am definitely the big worrier in this family

  14. Jeanette Jackson 09/23/2018 at 4:30 pm

    I am the worrier at our house. I am the one that reminds my husband about his pills and appointments.

  15. Ivelisse Woods 09/23/2018 at 11:39 am

    We try to schedule yearly appointments, I research diet guidelines to promote our families’ health, and we excercise.

  16. Michael Woods 09/23/2018 at 11:34 am

    I get an annual physical

  17. Bryan Vice 09/23/2018 at 7:10 am

    I’m always looking to make sure out home is germ free as can be

  18. Meg Tucker 09/23/2018 at 5:36 am

    I completely relate to the WebMD Google search thing! That is me all the way. My husband is the worst when it comes to taking care of his health but he also soesn’t do anything about it so in addition to already worrying about my elderly parents and kids I find myself visiting WebMD for him the most! I know I get annoying get on his case about seeing a Dr. but he’s overdue for a physical. Wish me luck!

  19. Tanya N 09/22/2018 at 3:10 pm

    I drive them to appointments, keep track of their meds, find out what everything means..no kids just parent and hubby!

  20. Brandon Sparks 09/22/2018 at 1:37 pm

    I give everyone rides to their appointments.

  21. Kay L Abbott 09/22/2018 at 7:02 am

    i am not a worrier. I take things as they come but an prepared with medicine and natural remedies on hand when sickness hits

  22. L. Adams 09/21/2018 at 3:58 pm

    We are not worriers but we do take precautions during the flu seasons and around others who are sick. Web MD has been resourceful on occassions when we were unable to see our physician right away.

  23. wendy hutton 09/21/2018 at 9:35 am

    not really a worrier takes things as they come, I am not one to go on the internet to see what health wise is wrong that is what my Dr is for

  24. Chris C 09/21/2018 at 9:29 am

    We’re both the worriers but Web MD doesn’t help much and our Doctor always sluffs off any concerns, even irregular blood tests. Even told hubby not to get prostate blood test at all! He had to insist!

  25. Test 09/20/2018 at 4:42 pm

    Test

  26. tiffany dayton 09/20/2018 at 4:12 pm

    My husband is the worrier. I take care of things when they come up.
