Meet Mark.

Story by Amy McGugan

 

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and we would love for you to meet a very special Aunt Sister Warrior, Mark! Mark is a prostate cancer survivor, current Warrior graduate and retired high school teacher from New York, NY.

Mark joined the program in July of 2021, and hasn’t looked back since. He says he “feels better and stronger since he has joined the Aunt Sister Project, and thinks more clearly since his arrival.” 

When asked what advice he would give to an incoming Aunt Sister Warrior, Mark advises to “do the program regularly, find exercises that you feel most comfortable performing, and ensure that you have nutritious and healthy meals.” He assures that anyone who participates in the program will “feel better, have more discipline, and live better, as exercise is truly the best medicine.”

Today, Mark is still an active Warrior in our graduate program, with high hopes of traveling soon to his favorite location, Peru, or perhaps to his son who currently resides in Australia.
