We will Be Brave for Josh. We will Fight for Josh. We will Raise Awareness for Josh. And We Walk for Josh.
Josh Horst... a Son, a Brother, a Husband, a Father, a Friend, a Warrior, an Inspiration, and now an Angel. Josh was diagnosed with Subungual Melanoma in his left thumb nail in January 2013. With a smile on his face, faith in his heart, determination in his mind, and unshakable courage he battled this disease for nearly 4 years. At the age of 32 this cancer stole him from us in November 2016.
When you think of "skin cancer" you think of the sun, tanning beds, moles, sunburns. You may not think that you can get "skin cancer" or Melanoma in your thumb nail, but the surprising truth is... you can. Just like us, Melanoma comes in all shapes, sizes, and forms. But the haunting fact is, Melanoma is vengeful, and we need to Find A Cure.
So We Fight for Josh, for All the Warriors Still Battling, and for All the Lives Taken Too Soon.
Please help us Find A Cure.
Each year, there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidences of breast, prostate, lung, and colon cancer, and the annual cost of treating nonmelanoma and melanoma skin cancers in the U.S. is estimated at $8.1 billion.
Given these numbers, Anne Arundel Dermatology is proud to be sponsoring the third annual Strides Against Skin Cancer 5K/10K Walk/Run on Sunday, May 20, 2018, to benefit skin cancer education, prevention and treatment.
This year, Strides Against Skin Cancer will benefit The Skin Cancer Foundation, and we are looking forward to another fun and successful event. Taking place on beautiful Kent Island, MD, the race will retrace the course of our 2016 Walk/Run and will provide scenic, shady views of the Chesapeake Bay. Join Us!
