How did a young guy end up with an “old man’s disease”?

In 2010, thirty-five-year-old Gabe Canales was diagnosed with prostate cancer. It was a shock—with no symptoms or family history of the disease, how could a young man receive such a serious diagnosis? Unexpected Diagnosis follows his journey to uncover the unconscious lifestyle habits that plague the well-being of American men. Through his journey to save his own life through improving his physical and mental health, he shares knowledge from top doctors, experts, and professional athletes, while providing insights on how masculinity and healthy living aren’t mutually exclusive. Canales’ story is an inspiring look at how micro changes in lifestyle and diet can lead to big changes in health, cancer outcomes, and lives saved.

A story of triumph and encouragement, Canales works to inspire and motivate men of all ages through his work to save his own life through improving physical and mental health.

Gabe Canales is a prostate cancer survivor and mens’ health advocate. He founded Blue Cure Foundation in 2010 and delivers health keynotes nationwide, including a TEDx talk. He is a contributor to the Houston Chronicle and HuffPost, and has been featured in Forbes.
