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.

Thank you for your support!

"Like many people, I have lost friends and family to cancer. Creating awareness and financially assisting those who tirelessly search for a cure is key to beating this disease. David’s Cure does this and more, hosting great events which promote awareness and raise money for the fight against prostate cancer. This is a fantastic organization that I am honored to be involved in."
