Jazz For Prostate Cancer
Jazz for Prostate Cancer Awareness® was created to remember legendary NYC jazz trombonist James “Jimmy” Stowe, who at age 61 succumbed to prostate cancer after a five-year battle. He insisted that his brothers, Ralph, Phillip, and Wendell, be tested for the disease during his treatment. Eventually, all were diagnosed and underwent successful prostatectomies due to their early screenings.
Encouraged by his urologist, Dr. Isaac Kim Ph.D., MA, MBA, Ralph became an advocate for the education and early detection of this men’s health epidemic. Ultimately, it was the high regard for his brother James within the jazz community that musicians offered their musical talents, which compelled Ralph to launch the Jazz for Prostate Cancer Awareness® charity in his brother’s honor.
