Every journey begins with a small step, a wise person once said. But even with patience, you can’t get from here to there without knowing where you’re going. So I’ve been asking myself, what exactly it is that I’m trying to accomplish with this blog?

One thing is to start a conversation aimed at bringing about better and more humane treatment for people with prostate cancer and their loved ones. I hope to do this by example, writing passionately and compassionately, and especially with humor.

I have also gathered a lot of useful information about prostate cancer in the past year, from patients and from my own research, especially in the area of erectile dysfunction. So there will be a lot of substantive stuff as well.

All people of good will are encouraged to participate.
