Dear Friend
The home page for The SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk/Run includes a photo from 2012 featuring Eric Fastabend, a young man leading the pack and wearing number 755. Eric is the captain of Team Fastabend. For the sixth consecutive year, the team will be gathering family members, running shoes, water bottles, and beautiful memories to participate in the 2013 SEA Blue Prostate Cancer Walk/Run in honor of Eric’s father, the late Bill Fastabend.  
"It's hard to believe it has been six years since our dad passed," said Eric, a pilot for Southwest Airlines who lives in Naperville. "Had he been tested earlier, he might still be here."
Back in 2004, Bill Fastabend was not feeling well.  Ever since the age of 40, Bill had thought of himself as being sufficiently responsible in maintaining his health. He got an annual check-up and was living a relatively healthy lifestyle. His doctors had never brought up the idea of checking PSA numbers. When an initial test was finally done, Bill's PSA was 2000 and he was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer at age 58.
"By participating in this event, our hope is to raise awareness of prostate cancer so that other families don't end up with a story that’s similar to ours," said Eric, pictured below with his children, Delaney and Jack.
