When I needed help and support, they were there. Unable to add anything to that.

I live in Catalonia. I use to visit the website almost every day and keeps me up to date in new drugs, management and risks of prostate cancer. Is a website written by specialized doctors. There is also forum where you can ask and comment the news posted. I think is the best website about prostate cancer.

PCI's Prostate Cancer Info Link is a terrific resource for those of us with Prostate Cancer. It's informative about the latest developments and insights that I just can't find anywhere else.

Although I was not the one diagnosed with prostate cancer, this organization was an emotional lifesaver for me! In addition to providing me with valuable information about Prostate Cancer, the emotional support, especially after my husbands initial diagnosis, was irreplaceable. I will NEVER forget the initial support that I received through Jan Manarite via PCRI. When I got on the "New" Prostate Cancer website, posing fearful questions, Dana actually called me and spoke with me by phone (as did Jan Manarite). I read Patrick Walsh's book immediately, but it is when I read Victoria Hallerman's (met on website) book "How we Survived Prostate Cancer" that I began feeling "felt". I don't check in much anymore, though my husband has progressed through surgery, radiation, and now (within last 2 months) to Casodex and Androgen Deprivation. I wholeheartedly recommend this organization to anyone who has Prostate Cancer, or who loves someone with Prostate Cancer! Claire C

The website does a wonderful job to bring a balanced view or recent developments of a frequently encountered malignancy to a demanding in often very knowledgeable audience, one that does not easily fall for hype nor fads. The information is provided in digestable bits with excellent references to more detailed studies. Worth every line of it.

The definitive source for the latest prostate cancer information that is evidence-based, cogent, and written at precisely the right level of technicality. I have used PCI almost every day since I was diagnosed and it has helped me choose therapies wisely that, I believe, have saved my life. Absolutely love this organization.

I was diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer eight years ago. PCaI's website is my go-to place for news and commentary on PCa. The Sitemaster is on top of the news in the field.

I live with very advanced prostate cancer in Melbourne Australia. I am also involved in academic research, albeit not medical. PCI offers me the perfect gateway to the most up-to-date science research relevant to my situation. Plus insightful and realistic explanations and commentary. It has helped me understand the options available to me now and in the clinical trial pipeline. I attend an excellent cancer research hospital that is at the leading edge, so PCI helps me ask intelligent questions and get down to details. I will continue to trust and depend on the excellent reporting by PCI.

I regularly follow the prostate cancer news on the prostatecancerinfolink.net website. This is my primary means of educating myself about new developments, and is an indispensable tool for me. Mike Scott and Allen Edel are amazing, both in the time and energy they put into preparing articles, and also in responding to readers' comments!

Hi,
I am extremely grateful for keeping me aware about the news and trends in prostate cancer treatments after total prostatectomy, which I had to undergo in November 2014, at the highly specialized Martini-clinic in Hamburg, Germany.
Your updates help to provide some clarity on expectations for future therapeutic measures, in case my PSA increases further.
Your comments hep to realize the controversial trends in postop treatments.
Please continue the way you work and help us all to keep us updated.
Thanks,, Peter Koerfgen, Switzerland

I find the information posted on the PCI, "New Prostate Cancer Infolink" to be timely, relevant, and above-all, well balanced. I appreciate postings with which the site master(s) disagree and I value their comments explaining their disagreement.

As a PCA patient, I received triple therapy: HDR, IGRT, and ADT. As I read the postings, I try to put myself (with that complement of treatments) into each article.

I found out I had Cancer in 2005. I discovered Prostate Cancer International several years later. I wish I had known about PCI at the beginning. PCI is the very best source of information and support that I have found, and continues to be the best. The information is timely, accurate and PCI goes to tremendous effort to make sure it is understandable. Their social network support is perfect and like PCI itself, compassionate.

I have been using The "New" Prostate Cancer Info Link for about 5 years. It is excellent! I wish I had been connected with them before I had my surgery - their explanations are on topic and very clear. I live in Canada, and while I am very pleased with our health care programs, in terms of being patient centred and up to date, the help I received from The NPC Infolink was vastly superior to what I received from our provincial prostate cancer program. NPCI goes put of its way to understand and respond to patients needs and concerns. It is remarkable. And it also offered a blog service, expertly monitored, that connected me to other men who were dealing with prostate cancer. I recommend this service to anyone, anywhere in the world.

This site gives up to date reviews of the scientific literature. Then has personal comments to clarify the science. An excellent balanced site. They don't
Post unless the information is important and they are very temperate in their reviews.
