A survivor & the DCC. A big deal.
John McGuire is a survivor that was diagnosed with prostate cancer more than a decade ago. From his time in treatment, to his time in remission, John has understood the complexities and challenges that cancer presents better than most.
“Cancer is not just a physical disease or problem, it has profound psychological impacts,” says John.
As a patient at Sylvester, he’s embraced a life of activity and exercise through Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Cancer Support Services.
“These services help the patient deal with the day-to-day problem of having cancer.”
John McGuire came to participate in his first DCC, and took on the 5K. His participation in the one-day fundraising event reaffirmed his notion that the impact made during the event is a big deal.
“I feel like I’m doing something positive for myself and doing something positive for Sylvester,” says John.
