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

Rating: 5 stars  

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
