Special Guest: Three-time baseball All-Star, prostate cancer survivor and Men Who Speak Up spokesman Ken Griffey Sr.

When former “Big Red Machine” outfielder and three-time All-Star Ken Griffey Sr. first learned he had prostate cancer, the diagnosis didn’t come out of left field. After losing four uncles to the cancer, he knew he was at risk and chose to make regular prostate exams a priority. This helped him catch his prostate cancer early. However, nothing had prepared him for hearing the words “you have prostate cancer.” After his diagnosis, speaking up about prostate cancer became more difficult, especially when it came to telling his Hall-of-Famer son, Ken Griffey Jr. But Griffey Sr. found his voice and shared the news, a move that ultimately helped him become more comfortable speaking with his doctor about his prostate health. Now, the father-son duo hope to inspire other men to do the same through Men Who Speak Up.
