One thing I have found a bit overwhelming at times is the unconditional support members of this website -prostate cancer postings - have for one another.
We often see it in the mass media blitzes for Breast Cancer Awareness - Dragon Boat Races - Fun Runs and the like - but so hard to find for Prostate Cancer - almost like a secret club in which no one wants to be a member - but are.
To Tony - congrats to you and your successes and your caring and heart...
To Todd -Living1963 - you are in our thoughts and prayers - here's to a good steady resolution to the increase and bring you back into the zero club -
RAH RAH RAH ( 3 cheers!)
- give us a T - give us an O - give us a D - do it again - D ! what do you got?
