Followers of money expert Clark Howard may know that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009 at the age of 53.
Since then, Clark has adopted a watchful waiting approach rather than seeking active treatment. He undergoes quarterly blood tests and urological exams, as well as an annual biopsy. However, he has not undergone any invasive procedures to date.
Clark got involved with the Prostate Cancer Foundation in 2011 and proudly supports the mission to help people living with prostate cancer.
“I know that when you receive a prostate cancer diagnosis, it’s hard to know where to turn, who to trust, and what to do next. But, I also know that the information available on PCF.org is information you can use, and I know you can trust it.” — Clark Howard
