And welcome to our forum. Our site was started by Peter Waite and has been a great place to meet whenever we can. Kind of a cafe for people in distress. God bless Peter. And God Bless you too. Your story belongs here with us. But I was just a navigational tool. Here's why:
For our members,
David has taken an active role in trying to beat advanced prostate cancer by going public. I have been inspired by him to do the same things. I wear the blue ribbon and bracelets. But I have not done what David can do for us. My Videos thread has his public appearances and I was very happy to see him there. Both in my link to him, but with his blessing and posts there in that thread. Some of, actually many of, Davids posts in his popular blog, have sent me into tears. But good ones. With a challenge we all do things better. And what David has done for all of us, and for me, is get the word out. Susan (myman) found his thread months ago and I have followed it. As an articulate man, he has added so much love and life to people with advanced disease. I am encouraging you all to stay with him. He will show you how to keep a good attitude, how to live life to the fullest, and how to be someone willing to make a difference.
David, thank you again. And welcome to the best site I have found that allows us to communicate with each other.
David's blog is getting attention. Have a look: http://prostatecancerat42.blogspot.com/
