Hi everyone,
Last night I searched on other forums by looking up 'prostate cancer forums'. It's amazing the difference in the level of intelligence of people! And the difference here is the absence of self-promoting post with 'I have a cure for you'. Yeah right...
In psych 101, the teacher said 50% of people have an IQ above 100 and 50% have an IQ below 100. Scary! Thank you all, for the quality of response one can expect on this site.

I agree 100%.
Lili we have something special here. In addition to seeking advice and experience, I have prayed, cried, and laughed with so many people I have never met. But here, we are a family of friends and mentors. My entire experience has been posted here and I will always try to another brother here. Gordy just posted a similar post about this site. It is like no other, and I can't explain why that is. I am a member of Yahoo, Yananow, Healthboards, and this one, but here is my cyber home for PC. I believe the spirit here is enormous.

Yep, the spirit, the honesty, the decency, the friendship, and yes, even the fun. Saved my bacon.
