My name is Dan Snyder and I am a musician and photographer. In 2015 I was diagnosed with stage 3 metastatic prostate cancer. I decided then to take action and not let prostate cancer control my life. As a lifelong hiker living in the Adirondack mountains of New York State, I continued hiking and exercising through my six months of treatment. My treatment included two months of daily radiation, five days a week. I found that diet and lifestyle change, and most importantly exercise, curbed my side effects to almost zero and that is exactly why I decided to create ADK Hike for Hope. ADK Hike for Hope is a conduit for bringing about awareness of this deadly disease, provide a forum of conversation and raising funds for prostate cancer research.
