The David H. Nickerson Foundation was launched in 2008 by his eldest son, Steven Cash Nickerson, to increase awareness, screening and to raise money for those working to find a cure for prostate cancer.

My father was an early casualty of prostate cancer, a disease that afflicts one out of six men in their lifetime. He was diagnosed far too late to be cured of the disease. And yet, the disease is treatable and curable if it is caught early.


Thank You for Supporting David's Cure Challenge 2012 - Gerald L. Andriole, M.D.
I am writing to thank Cash and Evie for the support they have provided to the Division of Urologic Surgery through the David H. Nickerson Foundation and David’s Cure Challenge Golf Tournament.


In Memory of David H. Nickerson

On May 1, 1996, David Nickerson lost a four year war with prostate cancer. He had overcome many significant challenges in his life. But he would be uncomfortable to hear any of that celebrated.


Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer found in American men, other than skin cancer and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in men. Lung cancer is the first. One man in 6 will get prostate cancer during his lifetime, and 1 man in 35 will die of this disease.

"David's Cure Charity Tournament has now become a family event. This year I brought my two sons to play and we were fortunate to win the event a second time. Since the first David's Cure event, a second family member and a longtime friend was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Fortunately, once again, it was detected early and with the proper treatment, both are now in remission. Early awareness of this disease is critical, and by supporting these types of charities, hopefully some day we will find that cure."
