It's been more than a year since former Buckeye Dimitrious Stanley announced his Prostate Cancer Diagnosis.

The former Ohio State wide receiver and The Football Fever analyst is raising awareness about the importance of men's health to Good Day Columbus' Maria Durant and Jackie Orozco.

Since his diagnosis, Stanley launched a new clothing line called "Undefeated" which represents our ability to overcome life's challenges and keep pushing forward with a portion of the proceeds going towards prostate cancer awareness.

Stanley hopes sharing his battle with prostate cancer and starting the "Brave Men Inc" foundation will encourage other men to get tested.

According to American Cancer Society, about 1 in 9 man will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime and there is 191,930 new cases a year.

Prostate cancer is more likely to develop in older men and in African-American men. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men who are 65 or older, and it is rare in men under 40.

The average age at diagnosis is about 66.
