September is prostate cancer awareness month, and all funds raised during this charity event will be donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation to help find a cure for this terrible disease
Tyler, TX (PRWEB) August 10, 2016
Callens Insurance Group, a family managed insurance and financial planning provider serving business and residential clients in the greater Smith County region, is initiating a charity drive aimed at raising awareness and gathering funds to fight prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer is a devastating disease that kills nearly 30,000 men every year, making it the second most deadly cancer among men in the US. However, unlike many other forms of cancer, early diagnosis of prostate cancer leads to a nearly 100% five year survival rate among diagnosed men. At ten years, 98% of men diagnosed with prostate cancer who received early detection are still alive.
“September is prostate cancer awareness month, and all funds raised during this charity event will be donated directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation to help find a cure for this terrible disease,” says Jeff Callens, founder and director of Callens Insurance Group.
Working alongside his professional team, Callens is connecting with supporters and donors all over the state of Texas via social media and email. Furthermore, the Callens Insurance team is in the process of producing a feature article on the prostate cancer charity drive for publication in the firm’s monthly online magazine “Our Hometown”: http://callensinsurance.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
More than half a dozen charities and nonprofit organizations in the Tyler area have enjoyed support from the Callens Insurance Group team over the last year thanks to the firm’s involvement with the national “Agents of Change” community involvement program. Going forward, the firm plans to select a new regional charity to support every other month.
