I may ask Gerry Chodak his thoughts about
this in May as I will meet him personally. I have already had some internet exchanges with him and I included his video site in the Videos link I maintain here. On May 9th I will be in Miami with him at an
open discussion for prostate cancer. I was invited to co-host with Rhonda Fine one of the breakout sessions by the Prostate Cancer Mission to give a patients perspective of the effects of prostate cancer treatment. I understand I will also be on the board with Dr. Chodak and as other well known doctors and consultants (Mike Scott) for a town hall QA session from the audience at the end of the seminar. These sessions will be video recorded and should be available on the net sometime this summer. http://pcmission.org/ is a HW approved site.
I am very honored by the request. In some ways it's a shame to be considered qualified.
