Review for Prostate Cancer International, Virginia Beach, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I use "The 'New" Prostate Cancer InfoLink several times weekly, both reading and often participating. It is a superb site that brings new developments and issues to the attention of the medical and survivor communities and allows us to share comments.

Review for Prostate Cancer International, Virginia Beach, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a seventeenth year survivor of once life-threatening prostate cancer, I find this website to be amazingly good - one of the very best I've ever used!

A core strength is the profound expertise, caring, and energy that the sitemaster employs in bringing us reports of worthwhile new studies and also discussing those studies with us.

This is my best resource in keeping up-to-date on the fast moving field of prostate cancer research and trends.

I eagerly await new articles on "The "New" Prostate Cancer Infolink. Almost daily I come away with information from outstanding reviews - objective, expert, insightful and in easily understood language - of new research papers and important news in the world of prostate cancer. This is important to me as a survivor for twelve and a half years of a challenging case, important both in dealing with my own circumstances and also in educating myself so I can help other prostate cancer patients and interact with prostate cancer advocates. I frequently relay information from the Infolink to other internet boards on which I participate and to my support and education group. A key feature of the service is the comment interaction after each article. Hot topics draw a number of responses, including my own, with balanced and thoughtful participation by the sitemaster, and frequently with posts from prominent medical professionals. This is the most valuable site I have ever used.

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

analyzing the controversy over screening for prostate cancer, which involves my sons. I have also personally benefited from the information about several new imaging techniques and drugs that are going through and emerging from the approval process. As an advocate and layman educator for prostate cancer, I have benefited greatly from news about what other people in the prostate cancer world are thinking.

We prostate cancer survivors are so fortunate to have an expert sitemaster who really understands medical research, knows prostate cancer, and is an outstanding communicator. The objective, insightful reviews of research are of great help in separating the wheat from the chaff, as are follow-up discussions through comments. "The 'New' Prostate Cancer Infolink" is a resource beyond price.
