Very informative

I would have had no exposure to this subject until something was amiss. I’m a 64 YO male and I imagine that at some point I could conceivably have to deal with some form of this or certainly friends and family will. Knowing ahead of time what to expect is a relief and it feels like I would not be in a panic if I heard the ‘C’ word regarding Prostate Cancer. I have forwarded this pod cast to my friends that are probably in the group of men that may have to eventually make decisions about this. I,for one, am much better prepared to develop a game plan as a result of listening to this Pod Cast. You are doing a good thing!
