Prostate Cancer Survivors






Return to Website

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.

Seeking Research Study Participants

A doctoral candidate at Walden University is seeking men willing to participate in a study entitled: "The Impact of Prostate Cancer on Survivors' Sense of Meaning in Life".

The purpose of this study is to examine how prostate cancer survivors construct meaning from their experiences. Participants will be asked to answer three sets of essay questions. Although this will not be an all-inclusive appraisal of the subject, it may add aspects to the literature as to what prostate cancer survivors' experience. The study will examine how participants adjust to a life experience with prostate cancer. Additionally this study aims to provide more clarity in defining the terms meaning in life as it relates to stressful life experiences.

Eligibility requirements consist of:
- 65 or under
- Have been in remission at least 1 year
- Speak and write English fluently
- Have a private computer
- Have a private email address
- Comfortable writing essays about your experiences with cancer

Participation is completely voluntary. To participate or for more information, please contact: Carol Brady (
