I hate this flippin’ disease. My discussion with my urologist went pretty much exactly as I suspected it would, but with a few twists to screw with my mind a little. One of those little twists, however, happened much earlier than the meeting. This morning…

If you aren’t pushing your personal boundaries, you aren’t living, right? Well, tonight I tried something that I’ve never done before. I was the guest speaker at the Riverside (California) Medical Clinic Charitable Foundation’s monthly Prostate Cancer…

It was an emotionally draining day at work today. We provide support to patients and their families at a local hospital, and a case worker came to our office looking for activities for a patient in his early twenties and his parents to do over the…
