PHILADELPHIA (April 15, 2019)—Fox Chase Cancer Center is pleased to announce its support for the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s annual “Walk to End Bladder Cancer.” Faculty, volunteers, patients, survivors and their families will walk together on Saturday, April 27.

Registration starts at 9:00 A.M. on the day of the event, with the walk beginning at 10:00 A.M. and lasting an hour. Entry fees are $25 for adults and $10 for children.

Colleen Tetzlaff, MHS, PA-C, a physician assistant who specializes in genitourinary cancers, leads the Fox Chase team.

“I am walking to support the nearly 81,000 people who will be diagnosed with bladder cancer this year, and to honor the 17,000 who die annually from the disease,” said Tetzlaff.
