Hi, Kate. Like everyone says, with all the therapies out there, it's a matter of staying positive and knowing you'll find the right one. They say prostate cancer is a slow-grower in most cases, but there are many of us who know that it can also seem to simply explode. We all will carry positive thoughts and believe that you'll be guided in the right direction toward a cure!
