Today my wife and I participated in a Pc 5K run-walk, over 500 folks participated. Maybe 50 men with PC.
I had a funny/emotional reaction to being called a survivor. As I reflect on it, it clearly has to do with my inner fear of reoccurrence/more treatment needed. There is no evidence that I need anything, too early in my post-treatment phase. However, as others have shared, the nagging wonder if they "got it all" at times is alive and well.
This is not something that I spend a lot of time thinking about
but today at this event it was palpable. During the run, I thought about
all the guys I know who are dealing with PC and hoped healing for them.
There were two cool aspects of the event. First Doctors and medical professionals were called down tot eh field and then they asked us with PC to come down and they gave us a hat. The other and most cool [portions was a dash and run where kids ran around the field, they had capes on and some were very young. Really nice event and I encourage all to participate.
