In February I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer. For those in the know of such things, my Gleason Score was a nine. Since February I had a radical prostatectomy and went through radiation therapy and am currently on a 18 month Hormone Therapy regimen. There are no signs of cancer in my system. Except for some invasion of the seminal vesicles, the post surgery pathology found no other cancer either in the other marginal tissue, nor in the 10 surrounding lymph nodes. Post surgery blood tests found no detectable levels of PSA. All seems well from that perspective.


Still there is loss through this whole affair, but it pales in comparison to the Support and encouragement that I have received. Special thanks to friends of whom I will name a few with apologies to those who fail to come to mind. Steve P, Shel P, Dan H, Julie H, Alec H, Kathy M M, Cinda M, Allan W, Pastor Paul, Pastor Steve E, Tim O, Chris C and to the unknown prayer warrior. Thanks for lifting me up through your encouragement and your time in "The War Room".


You are welcome to review my posts on caringbridge.org. Journal entries began on February 12. I share the specifics of the cancer as well as life events and observations along the way.


Feel free to contact me if you or someone you know is going through a Prostate concern or cancer diagnosis. It would be my honor to speak with you or your friend.


It is well...
