This important conference is being sponsored by:
Obediah Cole Foundation – For Prostate Cancer
American Cancer Society

The Obediah Cole Foundation is committed to education and prevention of prostate cancer in men. It’s founder Robin Cole, a former NFL All-Pro linebacker, is an entrepreneur and dynamic speaker and motivator.
After watching his father and uncle die from undiagnosed prostate cancer, three of Robin’s brothers were diagnosed with the disease, as well as himself. He caught the disease early and this motivated him to start up a foundation in his Father’s honor. Today, he is a healthy husband, father, and grandfather. His mission is to make a difference in men’s lives by educating them in the importance of physical exams and PSA testing.
