Eddie To Raise Cancer Awareness At Ballgame

Montgomery Gentry to play Braves game.

Eddie Montgomery, diagnosed with cancer last year, will bring his partner Troy Gentry with him to raise awareness of prostate cancer on Father’s Day at an Atlanta Braves game.

Montgomery Gentry will play for free after the Braves-Texas Rangers game, for which prostate cancer survivors will receive free tickets and T-shirts.

“I just want to make sure that every guy out there goes and gets checked,” Eddie said on the Braves’ website.

“Do it for your kids, do it for you, just go! The reason I had such a great outcome was because they caught it early. I just urge all the men out there to not put off a check-up.”
