yeah  The Merriest PCa story I know of thus far, considering being an uncurable case of PCa.
Weblink to his story if you have not read it before. He also invented cryo-therapy while working at Crittenton Hospital in Rochester, Michigan....a pioneer that made strides in PCa. He is also one of the premier Color Doppler Ultrasonographers in the World and still is working 2 days a week on patients whom need biopsies and investigations on PCa, at age 80+ now.
Using color doppler ultrasound on himself while learning about color doppler useage, he found he had PCa over 27 yrs. ago.   He did not do cryo in his case either(or Lupron), which is interesting.  One of the few happy stories of PCa scenarios when failed to be cured outright.
If you needed a ' it's a wonderful life' story on PCa patient whom failed to be cured...this might be it. Looks like a great role model and no Grinch zone.  Any other PCa stories similar to this should be posted.
