Since I was diagnosed with cancer, finding reputable discussions on the topic and information was a priority. The folks at Prostate Cancer International delivered. This organization has touched many men I know as well. My role these days is as a Patient Advocate, a Discussion board leader (at another website) and a support group leader in Las Vegas. I readily pull up the research information that PCaI Provides and it has been well received by all. Thank you PCaI...

I am Chairman of a PC support group in the UK and write a monthly news letter for my members. I find the "new" prostate cancer info link tremendously helpful, nay essential, in this excercise. I trawl many websites and generally pick-up most of the emerging news stories but this news site puts things into perspective; translates lots of medical mumbo-jumbo and makes the obscure clear. Long may it continue.

I was diagnosed with PCa back in May 2010. Having been under pressure and wanting to learn from others who have gone through this experience I resorted to Prostate Cancer International. I have provided my PSA tests results, Gleason score, CT scans, etc.. and sought advice on how to proceed with treatment. Prostate Cancer International was great as many of its members responded with advice on how to proceed, what to watch for and what to say and ask the medical specialists who were sought by me for consultation. All this helped make my journey quite a learned and comfortable one, given the circumstances. After more than a year with PCa and initial radiation treatment, I continue to link up with Prostate Cancer International and its wonderful and helpful volunteers.

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

understanding the various results of tests related to PCa taking a decision on what treatment to follow continuing follow up on post treatment developments exploring broader issues related to PCa, research and newer approved medical interventions

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

examine the possibility of making it multilingual so as individuals worldwide can link up and seek advice in their own languages.

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.
