I hate to welcome you here, but here we are! I came here at 44 and have been here a couple years. I have advanced cancer too, though your PSA is astronomical. I guess it just represents an opportunity for us both to do well at any case. I have something to share with you in that I count on Faith, Love and hope to get through the days. In addition, like you, I try to put a positive twist on everything I have to do in front of me. I have taken to advocacy and charity and find it most rewarding. My Email is open and I extend a hand to you as well. Perhaps we can share a story or just simply a friendship. May peace be with you. Again my lines are open.
