Woman walks to raise prostate cancer awarness
VILLA PARK – In September 2011, shortly before her father, Jack, died of prostate cancer, Mary Kanak of Villa Park went with her cousin to participate in the SEA Blue Prostate Cancer Walk and Run at Lincoln Park in Chicago.
Kanak remembers meeting representatives there from The Wellness Place, a suburban resource center for cancer patients, and Us TOO, a prostate cancer education and advocacy group. She talked about her father’s condition, about his treatment and about his medications. In return she got hope.
“All [they] did was show me love and hope,” Kanak said. “That’s all you want when a loved one is ill.”
