Did you know that 1 in every 8 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer? The Black Men Awareness of Prostate Cancer (BMAPC) Foundation of North Texas is working to lower that number and raise awareness about the disease. Their goal is to gather 200 males to test for prostate cancer, track and promote awareness, healthy eating and living to change their lives for a twelve month period of time. They will then proceed to every major city in the country, promoting the 200 man outreach program, contributing to a global awareness campaign, summit and conferences. The Foundation is forging a 24 month calendar detailing various activities to promote the awareness and cause for a cure.
Here at Medford Remodeling, we take great pride in supporting and giving back to the DFW community. It is encouraging to hear about the positive impact local associations, such as the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth, make in the lives of our youth. Serving over 14,000 children and young adults, the Boys & Girls Club has seven branch locations, all aiming to enrich the lives of disadvantaged individuals through skill-developing programs.
