I was informed today by PCa advocate Judy Thurman, that we have lost Howard Hansen to this disease.
Mr. Hansen is the last surviving co-founder of www.hrpca.org
and has served men with advanced prostate cancer for many years. Howard Hansen has won the top award ~ the Harry Pinchot Award ~ for his service in serving the prostate cancer community and it was presented to him in August.
My sincerest condolences are extended to Howard's family and friends. I am very sorry for the loss of a truly great advocate who served us all well.
