Thanks for writing this and for posting this! Very nicely done.
I'm just past a month on my Dx and I'm amazed, almost to the limit of my comprehension, how many I know have said the "...good cancer..." thing to me. Many are friends and even some extended family. I've heard the... "oh, a guy at work had this...NO PROBLEM...". Another said..."He just got it scraped out (TURP, I assume)...by the way, how's the new snowblower?".
I could fill several pages with similar comments.
It's obvious that there are still too many that look at this as being something simpler than it seems. I am trying to doing my part to get people pro-active. Get fit, stay fit, get checked, get checked again.
Thanks for your post.
