Life is tough enough with all of its twists and turns. We all experience hardships on our path, but we all also experience many pleasures and euphoric moments. Those of us who are under the influence of advanced prostate cancer still experience many moments of great pleasure and contentment. As a matter of fact, I believe, based on my own personal experience, that the positive moments far out number the negative.

We need to step back and take a deep breath. Putting the positive and negative in proper prospective will help us to see that our lives remain rich, even with the hardships that prostate cancer create.
