New Prostate Cancer Treatment Is A Real Life Saver

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Every year more than 200-thousand patients are diagnosed with prostate cancer.

It’s the most common type of cancer for men. Now, thanks to a new type of treatment, one local survivor can continue his marathon mission across the country.

Bate Blair, 76, likes to run marathons. Not half marathons, full marathons. He fills his days training to power walk 26.2 miles at races all over the country.

“It’s the challenge of doing it. Every time I line up at the starting line, I say ‘oh shoot, this seemed like a good idea when I signed up 9 months ago.’ But when you finish, hot dog we finished, we’re done,” he said.
