Hello friends! It has been awhile since I have posted, but I think of you all often. You have all been on my mind a lot, especially over the past week. My father had his PSA done and it came back undetectable!!! As you all know, these tests are so stressful and with my father's post RP pathology report, we are always nervous. (As I know you all worry too) We continue to hope for the best and hope to break through the bar that has been set for men living with advanced disease. Thank you all for your support over these last three years. I don't think I could have made it without you and I know that my father's treatment protocol wouldn't have been what it was, had it not been for this forum. I am forever grateful.
This morning I am off to the PACE race. It is pouring rain (shocking for Seattle I know), but cancer doesn't stop for the rain, so off we go! Hope you are all well!
