$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 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.

    My wife is the worrier, she is on Google every time someone gets a twinge.

  2. Stephanie Manley 09/20/2018 at 7:54 am

    Great way to get men checked regulary!

  3. Christina Jensen 09/19/2018 at 5:30 pm

    I’m the worrier in the family..I make sure my hubby gets yearly check-ups

  4. scott spiek 09/19/2018 at 7:41 am

    I use Google but don’t trust everything you read

  5. Nora T 09/19/2018 at 6:49 am

    I try to be educated, but pragmatically. Dr Google can scare you into thinking that EVERYTHING is fatal, lol. I try to let common sense prevail

  6. Delores Harris 09/19/2018 at 4:26 am

    I worry more about accidents outside the home than about general health. I keep informed by reading all the lastest health updates.

  7. M. L. 09/18/2018 at 10:46 pm

    I care for my family’s health by being informed. You have to be your own advocate, and it’s important to ask questions so you can understand health issues, medications and their side effects, treatments, etc…,.

  8. Lesley Lozonschi 09/18/2018 at 8:33 pm

    I’m the worrier in my family. I find myself always getting on my husband to get himself checked out.

  9. Tammy Horn 09/18/2018 at 12:18 pm

    It’s just my husband and I, and we both eat very healthy, stay away from processed foods, exercise often. We both are equal at worrying, researching and scheduling Dr. Appointments.

  10. dana 09/17/2018 at 8:51 pm

    I live alone so I’d say I’m “free range” – only looking up things when I need to

  11. Dave S 09/17/2018 at 8:24 am

    My wife is the worrier in our house. She books the Doctor appointments, searching the internet for symptons, and she is an amazing care giving, staying up at night and giving lots of cuddles to the kids when they need her.

  12. Rosanne Robinson 09/16/2018 at 7:10 pm

    I’m the worrier at our house ensuring that everyone books appointments with the doctor when necessary. I also ensure that my hubby takes his daily medications and gets his prescriptions filled when needed.

  13. Minta Boggs 09/16/2018 at 1:10 am

    I’m the one who makes everyone go to the doctor even though I don’t want to go myself. I’m the one who is constantly checking on how every one is and making sure everyone is taking their medicine and making sure everyone gets a follow up if they need to. I love my family so much and I will stay up all night to check on them through the night.

  14. Wanda Tracey 09/15/2018 at 9:53 pm

    I care for my family’s health by taking them to the doctor or hospital when something happens. I go to the drugstore for medications and sit with them until I know they are going to be okay. I am the worrier in the family when it comes to their health and yes I google everything to learn all I can to help them. Sometimes that can be a good thing and sometimes it just gives you more to worry about! ..ahem…just saying.

  15. Dian 09/15/2018 at 7:57 pm

    I’m the one who makes the appt at our Dr if I think there is a prob. No fooling around for me. I’ve seen to many deaths that could have ben avoided if proper care was taken

  16. Elllen Levickis 09/15/2018 at 5:35 pm

    I’m the free-range, no-worries kind of mom.

  17. Doreen Lamoureux 09/15/2018 at 2:31 pm

    I am a bit of a worrier but not like I was 10 or more years ago. It is what it is…. Do your best and just relax.

  18. jill broder 09/15/2018 at 2:02 pm

    i lost my dad, my hero to prostate cancer! I make sure we all eat right, exercise and get yearly checkups! I will not lose another person I love to this horrible disease!

  32. shannon fowler 09/13/2018 at 12:38 pm

  35. Sandi Tymchuk 09/13/2018 at 10:37 am

    I am not a Mom, but am an Auntie, wife, and healthcare professional. I like to encourage my husband (and myself) to eat well and live actively, including exercising regularly. Although these actions may delay disease and enhance quality of life and recovery, I know that disease and death are inevitable. I respect some individuals’ choices not to know or have screening, but I choose to see my doctor yearly.

  36. Beverly Mckinley 09/13/2018 at 9:37 am

    vitamins, exersize and dance, diet

  37. Lana Hood 09/13/2018 at 9:06 am

    I like to use preventative measures so encourage a healthy diet and lifestyle.

    My husband calls me Dr. Google. I tend to worry too much! I am constantly checking suspicious symptoms online, I feel it’s better to be safe than sorry.

  41. Susan Adams 09/12/2018 at 10:00 pm

    I care for my family’s health by keeping myself and them informed. I do some research on the internet, but that can be overwhelming…suddenly one has all the symptoms of terrible illness __X____. I’m the worrier, but I try not to nag too much.

  42. Nicole C 09/12/2018 at 9:42 pm

    We have a friend that was diagnosed with prostate cancer and it’s always something in the back of my mind for my husband to watch for.

  43. christy caldwell 09/12/2018 at 9:09 pm

    I guess I’m in between. I have times where I worry n freak out, bt Im usually calm and positive about illness.

    I live Healthy, eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, exercise regularly, and avoid drugs and alcohol. I manage stress and go for regular medical check-ups. There is only me and the fur baby in my house so I guess that would make me the worrier by default
