Yesterday, songwriter and musician, Dan Fogelberg died of prostate cancer at the young age of 56. He collaborated with flutist Tim Weisburg to create one of my favorite albums, Twin Sons of Different Mothers. His song, Run for the Roses, about The Kentucky Derby often brought tears to my eyes, especially as The First Saturday in May approached.
His death from prostate cancer is a reminder to all of us males, that prostrate cancer affects 1 of 6 men. One new case occurs every 2.5 minutes and a man dies from prostate cancer every 19 minutes.
Thank you, Dan for the beautiful music.
