Often called the "silent disease," bladder cancer affects people of all ages, races, and backgrounds.
According to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN), more than 80,000 people will be diagnosed with bladder cancer this year and more than 17,000 people will die. When caught at an early stage, the 5-year survival rate is 70%.
In honor of Bladder Cancer Awareness Month 2019, GBU is committed to raising awareness and research funds.
To that end, we're proud to be the local presenting sponsor for this year's walk:
