Locked Up in Support of Urology Health
LOCKED UP IN SUPPORT OF UROLOGY HEALTH
Rock 102s Morning radio hosts Shack & Watson will kick off the 5th annual Caged for the Cure radio marathon at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 28th from Lawson Heights Mall.
Shack and Watson will be locked in a cage for 26 hours straight, broadcasting live from the Cherry Insurance Cage, urging our community to donate money that will help release them from the cage. Funds raised will support the Leslie & Irene Dubé Urology Centre of Health and significantly advance the technology in Urology Operating Theatre #8 at St. Paul's Hospital.
Prostate Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian men. 1 in 6 Canadian men will be diagnosed in their lifetime. The Leslie & Irene Dubé Urology Centre of Health at St. Paul's Hospital was established to provide the best resources and state-of-the-art equipment to enable advanced detection and less invasive treatment options for those suffering from prostate and other urological diseases. The Centre incorporates a 'nurse navigator' to serve as a patient advocate and liaison between health care providers and patients who need help finding their way through the health care system during this stressful time.
Since the marathons inception in 2011, Rock 102's Caged for the Cure has raised more than $425,000 in support of St. Pauls Hospital.
