hoorah! - I got my angry design accepted at the Sponsafier Nascar design contest ( yes, I know I said I would stop at three designs)www.sponsafier.com/#/gallery/view/304163
- at the car website - click on my username -tatt2man - see my other designs ( and vote if you wish)
I have been very lucky compared to some here on HW - with recovery - support - and few complications - and a first post-op PSA result for zero Club status !
But there are many angry moments we all feel - some more than others - anger against prostate cancer - confusion and lack of details regarding surgery and other treatment forms - anger that our lives are changed forever ....
But some things do not change - the love of family - the love of life - the desire to fight back and WIN this fight - to find & receive support from such wonderful sites like Healingwell ( thank you Peter and moderators and members...) and various hospitals and clinics ...
On July 1 - Canadian celebrate 143 years since Confederation - and on July 4th, our American cousins celebrate their Independence Day - 234 years - let's all celebrate another year (or less for some) in our battle against Prostate Cancer !
All the best to one and all.
