This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
I was just reviewing your site and reading some of the older posts and I remember when I was diagnosed a year ago I read Robert Young's comments. I remember #10 stood out for me-though all the comments were inspiring. Only a year has passed and most of what was traumatic at the time now seems I'm more detached. Maybe over time the brain insulates our thought process or we just become better at handling the fact of life with cancer. Reviewing Mr. Young's comments brought back those awful days and made me remember how this good man had the strength of character in middle of his battle to stand up and think about others. I guess the lesson to be learned is, a way to stop feeling sorry for yourself is think of others and how you can help them in some small way. Thanks Terry for your website and what you do for others!
