The Walks to End Bladder Cancer are BCAN’s signature awareness events and take place in numerous cities in the United States, principally in May, which is Bladder Cancer Awareness Month.

Our volunteers are at the heart of everything we do, and we are so grateful to them.  Each walker has his or her own story, and below, we have shared stories from people about why they participate in the Walk to End Bladder Cancer.

Why I Walk to End Bladder Cancer

Name: Pam H.

Walk: Houston, TX, April 28, 2020

Why I Walk:  BCAN has truly been a lifeline for thousands of people, including myself, a bladder cancer survivor since May 2015. Finding BCAN was a life-changer for me.

Name: Rick B.

Walk: Richmond, VA, May 2, 2020

Why I Walk:  I had never heard of bladder cancer until I was diagnosed. Quite a scary time for me and my wife. Luckily, she found the BCAN website which helped us tremendously. Since then, I have felt the need to help others through their bladder cancer storm. I am so humbled at how we all have helped the Richmond Walk grow each year.

Name: Karen S.

Walk: Washington, DC, May 2, 2020

Why I Walk:  I walk in memory of my husband, Roger to still give him a voice in an organization he was so passionate about. I walk for myself, as a survivor, to spread the word of caring support, “You are not alone.”

Name: Jamie R.

Walk: Long Island, NY, April 25, 2020

Why I Walk:  Becoming a BCAN Team Captain has helped my family and I keep my Dad’s memory alive through the annual Walk to End Bladder Cancer. This walk has afforded us the opportunity to not only raise awareness about the illness, but to also have an annual day to honor my Dad. while celebrating survivors, new research, and overall progress made in the fight against bladder cancer.
