Chicago Bears and CTCA team up to raise prostate cancer awareness


CTCA and the Chicago Bears have teamed up to raise awareness about the second most common cancer among men in the United States: prostate cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates 233,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year, and about one in seven men will develop the disease in their lifetime. Together, CTCA and the Bears hope to open up dialogue about prostate cancer and encourage men to make strides to lower their risk for the disease.

CTCA patient draws on experience as a first responder to fight cancer

Eugene Hunley

When I worked as a firefighter/paramedic, fear was a constant presence. It was fear for my patients, fear for my fellow firefighters and even fear for my own life. Imagine how you would feel if you were about to walk into a 30-foot wall of fire. But fear on the job was always tempered by the support of my team.

I quickly learned the importance of having complete confidence in my fellow firefighters. Every member of my team was there to support me, whether it was at the hose, at a victim rescue, or if I went down. This is why firefighters call it a brotherhood.
