In the nearly 3 years since my diagnosis of prostate cancer, I have visited the prostate cancer infolink.ning site almost daily. It was a great source of information after my initial dagnosis; a great source of support during my recuperation from surgery; a great source to "compare notes" with other survivors; and a great place where I can help to provide support for others, both newly diagnosed and long-term survivors. It is wonderful to have a place to speak openly and frankly with others who are walking the same path due to PCa.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The information I received, the answers to my questions, and the opportunity to provide support to others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to make it better known to the general public.

I am a prostate cancer survivor. I have had surgery in the past year. This site is a good source of timely information on what to expect from the first diagnosis of elevated PSA to a diagnosis of cancer. It gives the patient that information the doctor may be uncomfortable in discussing.

As a prostate cancer survivor I have had numerous opportunities to share my story with other men who have been diagnosed with pCa. PCI was there for me when I needed information about the disease, treatment options, and encouragement in dealing with the emotional side. Now I frequently direct other guys to the PCI website to get the same help. They have always told me how helpful the PCI site was and how much they appreciated the site being there for them. The information is personal, accurate, and non-biased.

provide a tutorial for website navigation for computer dummies like me.

There is excellent information available on the website. The support groups offer strategies for coping with prostate cancer, whether you are the patient or the family member. Survivors and caregivers share their personal anecdotes pre and post surgery.

I was lucky to find the webside of "Prostate Cancer International" right after been diagnosed. At the time I knew nothing about the desease and did not learn much from the doctors treating me. So I read a lot and had a discussion with E.Michael ("Mike") Scott. His ideas about my treatment and his prompt answers to my questions (about the wight time to restart my ADT,for example) helped me a lot. Contacts with the other PC servivals ware also very useful.
Thank you "PC International"!

The site they run has provided invaluable information in the difficult time after my prostate cancer diagnosis. By providing a central location where fellow cancer patients can share information, and where doctors and others in the field can comment, it opens the door to many options that were not clear before visiting the site.

Seeing people helped in their quest for more information to deal with their disease.

As an online organization, they are poised to take advantage of the changes in the field. I don't think changes are needed except as an ongoing review of content and offerings.
