Trisha and Delbert Weishaar share Delbert’s journey with prostate cancer in an effort to encourage others to have an annual PSA screening.
Have you had your PSA screening?
Since being diagnosed with prostate cancer, Delbert Weishaar is striving to increase awareness among men about the importance of PSA screenings.
“Have you had a PSA done? It’s a simple blood test. Go get it done,” the Elgin resident tells others whenever the opportunity arises.
“He’s been a big advocate for it,” says Delbert’s wife, Trisha Weishaar. “But even in the community, whenever people found out that Delbert had it and they started talking to him about it, it encouraged a lot of the men that he knew and interacted with to have their PSAs done, which led to a couple of them being positive and having treatments done and a few of them just checking for the sake of checking and knowing that everything was fine and giving them a baseline to start from and monitor in the future.”
