Scorp,

 

My condolences about your dad. I know the fear, uncertainty, sleepless nights and sadness that this dreaded disease brings. Part of me is elated about the news, and part of me is sad, as I think of all the families who did not get the good news that we did. In thinking about it, it is now my obligation as one of the lucky ones to get out there and promote awareness. Prostate cancer can be beaten if caught early, but men don't know enough about it to go and get tested. Prostate cancer kills the same number of men that breast cancer kills women, but it only receives 1/10 of the research and awareness funding. My mom beat breast cancer because she saw an ad that recommended a mammogram; she got one, they found it, and removed the tumor two weeks later. That was 11 years ago and she is fine. It's not that breast cancer gets too much attention, it's that prostate cancer does not get enough. That's not right, and I'm gonna do something about it.

Congratulations and best wishes to you and your dad, Rich.

 

The level of publicity and funding for prostate vs breast cancer has been a pet peeve of mine for some time. Unfortunately, in these pc times anything I say about guys not "complaining" enough and being more active in this regard get taken wrong. Maybe it's my usual sarcastic manner that does it icon15.gif

 

Perhaps mostly male internet forums like this are a good place to start.
