We are excited to share that our founder and CEO, Ed Randall, was featured in the September 10 issue of AM New York Metro, the most widely circulated daily newspaper in New York City.
The article is a wonderful stroll through Ed’s early days in broadcasting and how the direction of his life and career changed in 1999 with his diagnosis of prostate cancer. Tracing the early days of the charity, the piece goes on to describe the Fans for the Cure’s long history with Minor League Baseball, as well as the launch of the online programs we initiated as a response to COVID-19.
“We coordinate PSA screenings, sponsor medical seminars, offer physician and hospital referrals, provide educational materials, and, most recently, host bi-weekly men’s health support groups. Given that there will be approximately 33,000 deaths nationwide in 2020, we pledge to commit all of our human and financial resources to increase the number of men who will live with the disease rather than die of it.”Ed Randall, Founder and CEO – Fans for the Cure
