Allan, thank you for posting this wonderful news!
I'm a newbe, and it has not escaped my notice that pretty much the only members around here are those in the first six months of their PCa journey. The general exception being those with challenges. I have always assumed the rest are doing well and busy living lives pretty much as if they'd never had PCa, or issues were ones they found easy enough to live with. It is great to have my theory of missing-members sort of confirmed, and especially with such excellent news.
You are who I want to be when I grow up, even though I'm a good deal older.
