I am tooting the horn for Terry's many years of work on PCa issues and his commitment to finding real truths and clarity if at all possible in PCa and this booklet and information is a start of a series he has. Great real information, forget some of the talk perhaps even from your particular doctor, the examples in this will give you a better idea of what is what. It helps debunk some the myths and generalities we hear in PCa issues.  I can remove this post if asked to by Terry or the H.W. staff if there is a reason? I see as all win-win for patients. Also, find information at Terry's website  www.yananow.net  one of the long running PCa independent websites.
 
You could read this for free at www.paactusa.org  (newsletters pdf file tab, pages 5-11 of the June, newest issue). It is a must read for PCa interested people. I look forward to the further booklet series that are coming (more about the process, biopsies, tests and scans)
Have fun taking a poll and trying to see whom are readers and whom might become readers?

No doubt about Paacts track record in helping patients in real ways, legal issues even envolvement, financial challenges and more. Rick drove from Grand Rapids to Rochester Michigan to see you at Dr. Lee's office, hundreds of miles driven, call that a clue.

"A Strange Place" is an excellent read and source of information, I read it early on in my journey, and have re-read it several times. I really appreciate the work that Terry has done for the cause over the years.
