Get well soon Grant

I am very sorry to hear the news, Grant. I will be thinking of you. I am not much of a pray-er, but I will certainly say one for you. God bless and keep you. Ron Youngs

Jeez. I'm so sorry to hear this.

On a brighter note, I personally know three people who have been through this and come out better than new.

Grant's got a lot of good Karma due so I'm sure he'll be just fine.

Get well soon.

Good luck Grant for a fast and complete recovery. Susan thanks for sharing.
My father had prostrate cancer and my brother has just been diagnosed with it. He has started hormone treatment but as he is in England and I'm in Mexico I don't know much more. It seems like he didn't have a check up for a couple of years.
Anybody with a family history of cancer should get checked annually. I will be far more dilligent in the future and will get checked every 6 months.

My father had cancer too and he recovered with some chemo and surgery but I think %50 of his remedy was his positive attitude to this world. Because of that I am sure Grant will recover soon too and you will do another round the world trip.

Get well soon.

Yep I'm absolutely going to beat this thing, I have no doubts.

Plus the airwaves are blistering with all the positive energy coming my way, for which I'm hugely grateful to all who have sent notes and best wishes.

Right now I'm just finishing the 4th round of chemo, two to go. Chemo really sucks, no energy, sore mouth etc, but it's all doable. Numbers are all going in the right direction, and the doc says I'm "super healthy", so everything looks good!

Thanks one and all - we'll keep you posted!

Very sorry to hear the bad news Grant, but thankfully Prostrate Cancer is treatable.

Coincidentally, I had my first routine PSA test about a month ago (thankfully OK). I had been delaying it, as I heard there was a new prostrate test being developed, which was more accurate, based on urine analysis. However, my doc here in Germany didn't know anything about it yet.

Wishing you a speedy recovery and as you and others have said, a positive attitude goes a long way.

Only just found this, I had no idea.

Grant, I just want to echo the sentiments of those above and wish you a full and speedy recovery. You've given us so much through Horizons and I'm certain there will be more to come..! With Susan looking after you, you'll be back on the Beemer in no time.

All the best.

Grant and Susan - my sincere best wishes to you both.

My boyfriend was diagnosed with prostate cancer just 8 weeks after we met last year. His options were surgery or radiotherapy.
As Susan says, all the options had difficult side affects to deal with, it's not an easy choice. Mike chose the latter and is currently having hormone therapy before the radiotherapy begins.

Keep positive and look forward to a C-free future
