Today is my 67th birthday, and it happens to correspond almost to the day, two years ago in June, when I realized that I had prostate cancer. I almost certainly had PCa a long time before that, but did not know it.
I have learned a lot since then about
this disease, and want to thank the members of this forum who have educated me by posting interesting and useful information, and also thank those who have given support through words of encouragement. And I hope some of my posts have contributed in both ways.
Hope today is at least as good for all of you as it is for me. Things seem so much better now than they did two years ago, though no doubt there are many challenges ahead.
