Several thousand people have added their names to the sign-on letter at, in just the first week. With May 31 as our dead line, many more names will be added. Our prostate cancer community is showing its size and cohesion. As Lance Armstrong so brilliantly advocates, we are living strong.

We’ve also received about 45 emails of extraordinary passion. So, you all have given us an idea. Please consider writing an email about your experience with prostate cancer and your desire for a cure. A few sentences or paragraphs…write with facts or just from your heart….your choice. In fact, if you disagree with the sign-on letter on the website, please write about that as well.

We will include all of your emails in our presentation to the FDA, along with the thousands of your signatures. If we have time, we’ll try to create an easy to read presentation rather than just hand in a stack of emails. Let’s show the face of prostate cancer from our grass roots level.

In many ways, the FDA is doing brilliant and life saving regulation and we are not at all out to do general bashing of their work. But, they have yet to see the large face of us. They need to know we are alive, but, not complaisant. We want carefully vetted treatments, but we want them before we or our loved ones die.
