It’s that time of year again. Time to turn everything blue in support of Prostate Cancer Awareness month.
But more important than turning everything blue is educating yourself about this disease.
For those of you who think that prostate cancer is an “easy” cancer, or “cancer-lite,” you’re wrong. Sure, it has a high treatment success rate when caught early, but it also takes lives. So far this year, two of my fellow prostate cancer bloggers succumbed to this disease. It’s not something to ignore.
Get smart about prostate cancer. The life you save could be your own.

Good advice! I hope your nephews read this and get tested.
My husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer on July 1st. His PSA was 5.1 last July and 14.7 this July with several Gleason scores of 8. He had the cryosurgery on August 7th and now we wait. I read everything I could find, including every single page of your blog. I have learned a lot about a lot! So now we wait until November for his next PSA. We are hopeful, but in the meantime, thank you so much for taking the copious time to write such a great, informative blog. I wish you well on the rest of your cancer journey; may it lead you to freedom.

Good on you Dan! I did my 9th PSA test last week since I went into remission. Just checked it and it’s all good! That’s 27 months:) Hope you’re doing OK!
Congrats, Luigi. That’s great news.
