Another great website dedicated to all of us as patients. prostatecancerinfolink.net

TNPCIL as I call it is run my Mike Scott and Arnon Krongrad. They are broken into two websites, the news and information feed, and the social network. Mike and Arnon started a 501.c.3 company called Prostate Cancer International ~ link is [url]http://pcainternational.org. This arm of the InfoLink is responsible for some of the best video interviews on the internet. Some of the very best doctors are interviewed in a very professional setting. I attend these filmings with Mike and Arnon and was inetrviewed myself. LOL, but please check the doctors and advocate interviews.

Back to the InfoLink. There is no better source that I have found in the internet for current information and prostate cancer news. If you get a chance, check it out...perhaps check it daily.
