My name is Joe Rodi, 58, and I have been the National Auction Manager at JP Morgan Chase for the past 18 years. But this is not about cars, this is about raising cancer awareness for the many men out there, like me, who thought it couldn’t happen to them.
After my regular annual check-up, which included monitoring of my PSA levels, and a follow-up biopsy, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although cancer has been an unfortunate part of my family history, I was still shocked. I felt great! I had absolutely no symptoms! Lucky for me, the early detection and prompt treatment will give me a great chance at a full recovery.
It also gives me a great opportunity to ask you to show your support for me, and for the tireless work of the T.J. Martell Foundation, an amazing organization that has raised more than $280 million dollars since 1975 to fund innovative medical research focused on finding treatments and cures for cancer.
Please wear the Rally with Rodi wristband, courtesy of Manheim Auto Auctions, to show your support as we rally together to beat prostate cancer, not just for me, but for the generations to follow. Please remember, if it can happen to me, it can happen to anyone. Go get your PSA checked!
