“We created this event to call attention to prostate cancer and to tell all the dads that we want you to get screened and, if necessary, treated,” said Eugene Simor, President of Alamo Beer Company and a prostate cancer survivor. “Father Fest is meant to be a lot of fun but also to encourage men to take prostate cancer seriously.”
The event is free admission to the public starting at Noon, and benefits Pints for Prostates, a grassroots campaign designed to raise awareness among men about prostate cancer and the importance of early detection in fighting the disease. The group was founded in 2008 after beer journalist Rick Lyke was diagnosed at 47-years-old and successfully treated for prostate cancer. Lyke will be on hand at Father Fest this year.
“Prostate cancer is the second-most common cancer among American men,” said Dr. Naveen Kella of The Urology Place, which will provide free PSA, testosterone and lipid screenings at Father Fest. “But it also is very treatable and survivable when detected early. Father’s Day is a great time to have a conversation with dad and tell him he needs to get screened.”
