PCaI has provided and continues to provide professional and knowledgeable information regarding issues involved when diagnosed with prostate cancer as well as the treatment of that cancer both early on as well as when recurring. Every single day the latest information from medical journals is posted on this excellent website with knowledgeable and expert commentary. The site then provides the capability for readers to comment either pro or con or with additional information to support that having been posted. Truly an outstanding website for prostate cancer patients, caregivers, and physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of this insidious men's disease.

Recognizing that patients and caregivers have found this website as one that provides up-to-date information regarding scientific break-throughs, medical trials for prostate cancer, and a place where patients and caregivers can exchange information on any subject related to prostate cancer.

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

Change nothing. It is outstanding in its own right.

There is a plethora of media announcements, usually based on feeds from interested parties, which can cause problems for men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their supporters. The New Prostate Cancer Infolink decodes these and helps people understand which contain useful information and how this may help them and which (regrettably it seems the majority) are merely a distraction.

In addition valube information from technical journals is summarised and these entires are of enormous help to people trying to understand the intricacies of prostate cancer.

I just wish more people knew of it - it is underutilised in my opinion.

At present our primary activities are on line. We provide a daily news service (The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink; see http://prostatecancerinfolink.net), a social network for patients and others to share information (see http://prostatecancerinfolink.ning.com), and we have other longer term goals that will need funding and work.

In addition, Prostate Cancer International is a member of the Prostate Cancer Roundtable (see http://prostatecancerroundtable.net).

Being able to see the growth in the usage of our web sites over the past 3 years. The "New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink now receives an average of 2,000 unique page visits every day of the year. Over 2,750 men and women belong to our social network.

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

Need to generate a lot more money to be able to implement even some of the ideas we have in mind!
