The Voices of Prostate Cancer

Listen to real people talk about what it’s like to have prostate cancer on the NY Times blog:

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/06/26/voices-of-prostate-cancer/

I have not had a chance to listen to this, but I’m sure it’s worthwhile.  There are interviews with a diverse group of men who’ve had PC.

I commend the NT Times for its prominent coverage of prostate cancer (last week there was a front-page story), even though I don’t always agree with their views.  It doesn’t hurt to send them a nice note.  I have told dear husb many times that I’m sure either the editor or publisher of the Times has PC — or maybe both.

Has AWARENESS arrived at long last?  I don’t know, but we are making progress.

    Hi Leah!

    I also left a comment on that blog…to me the very best part of the article and comments was that FINALLY men are talking. As we both know, it’s not only the technical information a man needs to have, but more importantly, the emotional, physical and innate need for support that is being addressed by men from all walks of life.

    For that, I am grateful! One major piece of the cancer puzzle or buffet of solutions that is missing is the true curative value of proper nutrition.

    I was wondering if you have read any of Dr. Dean Ornish’s research results regarding diet and lifestyle modification and how it halts the progression of prostate cancer? It was published in 2005, the abstract can be accessed on pubmed.org.

    Sincerely,
    Karen
