Let me be clear from the beginning – I am not a physician, not a part of the medical community, nor associated with any organization that profits from cancer or it’s treatment. Rather, I am a man who is a prostate cancer survivor. I have been through what, if you are reading this, you are going through or someone you love is going through and I know the ropes. That does not mean I have the answers to all your questions, but more than likely I have asked them.
I have dealt with the emotions associated with the initial diagnosis. I have researched and researched treatment options and feel, that from a layman’s perspective, I have a good grasp on the benefits and detriments of most common treatment approaches. Most importantly, I know what the side effects are and have, within reason, been able to overcome them.
Search this site, if you have not already done so, and read the entries as they have become well read by men and women alike. Then if you have questions, feel free to e-mail me. I will respond. I am blessed to be cancer free and feel that if I can share what I have come to understand with others I will, in my own way, pay it forward.
Likewise, I am writing a book about my experience and the experience of others in this arena. If you would like to become a part of this work, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org – we will then set up a time for an interview. Believe me your input will help. You and the experience you have had can make a difference.
My best to you and don’t hesitate to make contact.
