Hall Of Famer Mike Singletary And Legendary Center Jeff Bostic Spoke At Event Emceed By Hall President David Baker that Raised Over $50,000

CANTON, OHIO – ProstAware, a nonprofit organization devoted to raising awareness about prostate cancer through the dynamic worlds of music, technology, and sports, hosted the Prostate Cancer Awareness Dinner on Thursday, April 13 at 6 p.m. at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The event was presented by Aultman Hospital, and proceeds from the dinner went to the community to support The Aultman Cancer Center and to help ProstAware continue to bring exciting and engaging events to promote discussions about prostate cancer.The event raised over an impressive $50,000 for prostate cancer awareness.

One of the best highlights of the night were the speakers and performers. Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary was the keynote speaker with a special message from prostate cancer survivor and three-time Super Bowl Champion Jeff Bostic. Both Singletary and Bostic enraptured the crowd with their inspiring speeches. Pro Football Hall of Fame President and CEO David Baker emceed the event. Dr. Scott Miller, president and founder of ProstAware as well as Jeff Bostic’s surgeon, also spoke to the crowd about the importance of early detection, imploring people to stay on top of their health with this disease. There was a special live painting performance by renowned artist Jared Emerson, who created a painting of the Hall of Fame’s gold jacket and building in less than 20 minutes.

Tim Smith, Executive Director for ProstAware and a prostate cancer survivor himself, was thrilled to partner with the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Aultman Hospital. Smith educated the attendees of the event about the statistics of prostate cancer and the importances of receiving early screenings.

“We are honored to partner with the Hall of Fame and Aultman to help bring awareness of prostate cancer to men and their loved ones in Canton and the surrounding communities. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among American men and early detection and proper treatment will save lives.”

David Baker, who presented Mike Singletary with his Kay Jeweler’s Ring of Excellence, said, “We were pleased to host the Prostate Cancer Awareness Dinner at the Hall. The Hall has been an active partner with Aultman Medical Center in prostate cancer screening for our Gold Jackets during Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls for the last three years. Gold Jacket Mike Haynes, through this screening, detected the disease in its early stage. Today, he serves as a national spokesperson for prostate cancer awareness. Prevention is the best medicine.”

“I have never been so inspired and so welcome by the people of Canton,” Jeff Bostic said during the event. “The Hall of Fame is indeed the most inspiring place on Earth.”

Singletary was drafted in the second round of the 1981 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears where he played as a linebacker from 1981 through 1992. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998 in his first year of eligibility. A nine-time Pro Bowl selection, Singletary was All-NFC nine consecutive years and All-Pro eight times during his 12-year career. He was also named Defensive Player of the Year in 1985 and 1988. Singletary finished his career with 1,488 tackles (885 solo), 51 passes defensed, 12 fumble recoveries and seven interceptions.

Bostic was a center for the Washington Redskins from 1980 through 1993 after signing with the team as a free agent. He transitioned to starting center position in 1981 and helped lead the Redskins’ famed “Hogs” offensive line for 14 seasons. Bostic won Super Bowls (XVII, XXII, and XXVI) along with four NFC Eastern Division titles. He was named ALL-NFC in 1983, selected to the 1984 Pro Bowl and named the Redskins Ed Block Courage Award recipient in 1985. In 2015, Bostic was honored into the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame.

ProstAware enjoyed successful partnership with Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, raising $15,000, creating awareness for prostate cancer

February 2, 2017 (Atlanta) — ProstAware, a nonprofit devoted to raising awareness about prostate cancer through the dynamic worlds of music, technology and sports, enjoyed a successful partnership with the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl that helped to raise $15,000 and create awareness in the fight against prostate cancer.

ProstAware commissioned artist Jared Emerson to paint three pieces for the Dec. 31 game at the Georgia Dome, as Alabama defeated Washington 24-7 in the first College Football Playoff Semifinal game held in Atlanta. Emerson’s paintings of Alabama head coach Nick Saban and of the Washington Huskies mascot were signed by each of the team’s coaches and auctioned during the game. A third painting, of the bowl’s 2016 theme and logo, was donated to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl organization by ProstAware and will hang in its corporate offices.

Dr. Scott Miller, the founder of ProstAware and a robotic surgeon with Georgia Urology, said he was thrilled to partner with the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. More than 71,000 fans were on hand at the Georgia Dome to see four, 45-second public service announcements run on the electronic boards.

“We were honored to partner with a game of such stature and excited about the recognition that it brought to the fight against prostate cancer, which is the second-leading cause of cancer death among American men,” Dr. Miller said. “We also would like to thank Jared for his commitment to helping raise awareness for prostate cancer through his talents and exciting performances.”

Emerson painted the Saban and Huskies pieces during live game-day performances at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl FanFest Presented by Tyson. A crowd of 30,000 was anticipated at the Georgia World Congress Center for the FanFest.

“In addition to providing an unmatched Bowl Week experience for the players and fans, the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl is college football’s most charitable bowl game — having provided $21 million in charity and scholarships since 2002,” said David Epps, Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Chief Operating Officer and Vice President, Marketing. “We’re proud to partner with him to benefit ProstAware and raise awareness of prostate cancer and proper screening.”

Chicago Bears’ quarterback Connor Shaw spotlights ProstAware for the NFL’s “Cleats for a Cause”

During the first week of December, the National Football League is hosting “Cleats For a Cause”, an opportunity for shaw2-500x500athletes to wear specially-designed game day cleats to spotlight a cause or charity of their choice. Connor Shaw, quarterback of the Chicago Bears, has chosen ProstAware as his charity in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer survivor Tim Smith, the executive director of ProstAware, is Shaw’s father-in-law and was a big influence in Shaw’s decision to select ProstAware as his charity of choice.

“A personal experience that inspired me to get involved in my cause happened last year when my father-in-law was diagnosed with prostate cancer,” said Shaw. “This caught us all by surprise. He had no symptoms and was relatively young, only 53 years old. Fortunately, they detected it early and after successful surgery, he is now cancer free,” continued Shaw. “I want to encourage all men to know about prostate cancer and the need for appropriate screening for early detection and treatment. It can save your life!”

Vince and Barbara Dooley help ProstAware raise $125,000 at Blue Ties Luncheon to create awareness for prostate cancer

September 26, 2016 (Atlanta) — Legendary University of Georgia football coach Vince Dooley and his wife, Barbara Dooley, the former radio personality and political activist, Heisman Trophy-winning special guest George Rogers and emcee Jeff Hullinger of 11 Alive helped to raise $125,000 at ProstAware’s eighth annual Blue Ties Luncheon on Sept. 9 at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead.

ProstAware is a nonprofit devoted to raising awareness about prostate cancer through the use of music, technology and sports. The total amount raised exceeded Blue Ties’ total in 2015 of $75,000. In a discussion with Hullinger, Barbara Dooley spoke earnestly and comically about her experience as a breast cancer survivor and Vince Dooley discussed the importance of prostate cancer awareness, among various other topics.

More than 450 people attended this year’s event, with special guests including former Atlanta Falcons and Braves player Brian Jordan, former Washington Redskins player Jeff Bostic and his wife Lynn. The band Lilac Wine played during the event, performing the song “Tell It Like It Is,” written by Dr. Scott Miller, the founder of ProstAware, about what a patient might experience upon receiving a prostate cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Miller, a urologic robotic surgeon with Georgia Urology, and Tim Smith, the executive director of ProstAware who is a prostate cancer survivor himself, have been crusaders against prostate cancer, the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS). In 2016, more than 180,000 new cases will be diagnosed in the United States, ACS estimates.

“I am thrilled that we were able to have such a successful event and that we were able to raise a record amount of money for ProstAware,” Dr. Miller said. “I would like to publicly thank Vince and Barbara Dooley for taking time to help make such an important contribution to our cause this year. With these funds and with the attention that they brought to our mission, hopefully, we can help to save more men’s lives and extend the geographic footprint of ProstAware beyond metro Atlanta.”

Dooley won 201 games between 1964 and 1988 at Georgia and is best known for guiding the Bulldogs to the 1980 national title. He was twice named national coach of the year and seven times earned Southeastern Conference coach of the year honors. He served as Georgia’s athletic director for 15 years after retiring as football coach. Barbara Dooley is an avid supporter of cancer prevention and awareness.

Dr. Scott Miller discusses study showing prostate cancer screening lags

Dr. Scott Miller, Georgia Urology 5670 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd Suite 1250 Atlanta, GA 30342 smiller@gaurology.com

When the news broke earlier this week about two studies in the Journal of the American Medical Association that showed fewer men were getting screened for prostate cancer (and that fewer early stage cases were being detected), a lot of people might have been surprised.

Dr. Scott Miller was not.

Dr. Miller has long disagreed with the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force recommendations, which were deemed to be the reason for the fall-off in screenings and early detections. Dr. Miller sees the Task Force recommendations as arbitrary. The Task Force was concerned with “overtreatment”; thus, it advocated less screening. Dr. Miller said he sees that reasoning as illogical, as peoples’ lives are at stake.

In 2012, the Task Force issued a recommendation against PSA screening. (PSA is a protein in the blood produced by the prostate; high PSA levels can indicate an individual is at higher risk for prostate cancer.) In addition to the Task Force, a number of organizations, including the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and the American Cancer Society, issue contradictory guidelines.

Dr. Miller, who has been a leader in the Atlanta medical community when it comes to prostate cancer issues, said this can lead to confusion.

“The position that I come from is that you have all these major organizations giving a bunch of different recommendations so the patient is receiving mixed messages,” said Dr. Miller, who founded the nonprofit group ProstAware to create greater awareness in metro Atlanta regarding prostate cancer. “And that’s what the primary care physicians also are hearing. Those are the people at the front line for cancer screening. Patients typically don’t go to urologists for cancer screenings, it’s only a small percentage. Most of the screening is done out in the community by primary care physicians. So to make that message more concise, once a man reaches age 40, they should learn about their risks of dying from prostate cancer and their need for screening. In essence, this approach encompasses all of those recommendations by the various organizations.

“If you take one of the organizations that says men should start receiving screening at age 50 but earlier for higher-risk groups, how do you know if you’re in a higher-risk group if the message you’re getting is the media bite or the sound bite that says most men don’t need screening?”

Dr. Miller believes that more education is the answer.

“Be informed of the risks of screening and of not screening,” he said. “Patients should have a role in that decision but it shouldn’t be so cumbersome that it doesn’t even make it logistically possible. As for the role of the primary care physician in this discussion, they have a lot of balls in the air when a patient comes in their office. Even if you have a healthy patient, you have to look at their blood pressure, their sugar, their lipid panel, and their lifestyle – not to mention their other screening needs such as colonoscopy. If the primary physician has to look at all of these things, how can they have that three-to-five minute conversation with every single patient about prostate cancer screenings? They really can’t.”

As an editorial accompanying the studies in the Journal of the AMA said, the pendulum has swung too far away from getting men tested. No surprise, then, that the Task Force already has begun a review process.

ProstAware announces sixth annual Blue Ties luncheon to raise prostate cancer awareness

 Prostate cancer survivor and Arizona Diamondbacks President and CEO, Derrick Hall, to deliver keynote address at Sept. 12 event

Now in its sixth year of raising prostate cancer awareness in the Greater Atlanta area through music, technology, and sports, ProstAware’s Blue Ties luncheon returns to the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead, on Friday, Sept. 12, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Jerry Carnes of 11-Alive WXIA-TV will again emcee the annual event, which benefits ProstAware’s mission of furthering prostate cancer education and awareness.

Dr. Scott Miller, the founder of ProstAware and a urologic laparoscopist with Georgia Urology, created the event to bring awareness to the prevalence of prostate cancer in the U.S. By using music, technology, and sports — commonly shared interests among most men — as vehicles to generate interest and discussion, Dr. Miller hopes that the event will encourage all men to consult with their personal physicians about their prostate health.

“ProstAware is the leading source of raising prostate cancer awareness and providing prostate health education in the Greater Atlanta area, a role we take very seriously,” said Dr. Miller. “But we also recognize the importance of having fun doing what we do, and each year the Blue Ties luncheon offers a unique and entertaining forum to promote prostate health. Essentially, we want men and their families to be more educated about the disease, and to use that knowledge to make the best decisions for their own health.”

Derrick Hall, President and CEO of Major League Baseball’s Arizona Diamondbacks, will deliver this year’s sports-focused keynote address. Considered by many to be among the leaders of the game, Hall has turned the Diamondbacks organization into a model franchise during his eight years at the helm of the club. Under Hall’s leadership, the Diamondbacks have won two National League West Division Championships (2007, 2011) and the National League Championship Series (2007) while also becoming one of the largest philanthropic entities in Arizona. As a prostate cancer survivor and tireless advocate of cancer-fighting charities, Hall regularly speaks publicly about his past diagnosis and health challenges to raise prostate cancer awareness and encourage other men to monitor their prostate health.

In addition to the keynote address, attendees can expect to mingle with notable figures from Atlanta’s sports, music, and technology industries during the event. All funds raised from the Blue Ties luncheon will benefit ProstAware’s year-round educational programming. To purchase tickets, visit http://prostaware.org/blue-ties-event/ or call (770) 643-1807.
