As you know I was a Raider Ball Boy in 1968 & 1969 (Greatest 2 Years Ever!) and now I'm staring at 68 on Aug 1st. I want all of you to make it to 68 and some of you may already be there??? Anyway, I love the Raiders don't care one bit what city name is in front whether Oakland, Vegas, or Tim Buck Too. I know you do as well. We are FAMILY. Sometimes we get pissed at each other, but all brothers and sisters do that right?
The reason for this writing is aimed at you brothers only and for you sisters to share with your man.
GET YOUR PSA checked! I found out I had Prostrate Cancer in Dec of 2020. I had a Prostrateconomy in May 2021. The Doc said if I hadn't had the surgery I wouldn't make it to MAY 2023...here I am alive and well!!
My PSA results were normal every year since 1989. Here's where your PSA should be:
0-2.5: Normal for a man 40-50 yrs. 2.5-3.5: Normal for a man 50-60 yrs. 3.5-4.5: Normal for a man 60-70 yrs. 4.5-5.5: Normal for a man 70-80 yrs.
From normal in Oct 2019 to 7.5 in Oct 2021. It changed that much in one year. I had zero symptoms to indicate I had cancer...none. So you may feel great...it doesn't matter.
Anyway...this article is a plea with all of you to make an appt and get your PSA checked...it could SAVE YOUR LIFE and keep you around for your family and for a SUPER BOWL win by our RAIDERS!!!
Don't get mad for me writing this it's just from your brother!!
