Prostate Cancer International
June 29, 2011
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
Ways to make it better...
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.
Volunteer & I continued working helping refugees and needy people.
