Finding a Cure!

1 in 6 American men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer this year—More than 32,000men will die from this disease this year alone.

As you can see from my blog, on May 29th, 2008 I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer at age 41. It has been an incredible journey, but after 3+ years I am cancer free! Because I am so blessed I want to make a difference in the lives of others affected by this disease and those who need education about the importance of proactive screening. It’s my mission to continue raising awareness and funds to find a cure for this disease. It’s also an honor to be a part of Team Winter to help raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Prostate Cancer through the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

On November 6th, I will be running in the 2011 ING New York City Marathon to help in the fight against this disease. I have chosen another marathon because that's what it will take to win the battle against Prostate Cancer! The team at the Prostate Cancer Foundation runs a marathon everyday to try and find a cure and I want to join them in their quest.

I am deep into my training for this event and am inspired by the support you have shown me in the past and would appreciate your support once again as I run 26.2 miles for a cure. Thank you for supporting me in my journey and thank you for supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation with your kind and generous (tax deductable) donation. Together we can make a difference in this world and look forward to carrying you on my shoulders to the finish line!

Its been an inspiration reading your journey. I share a similiar situation with you but have yet to go through it. On Oct. 25th I was diagnosed with prostate cancer at 40 years old. I am still trying to sort through all the options and still am undecided as to what to do. It is comforting to find people in a similiar situation as me that has gone through this. When the Doctors say that I am an anomoly and the youngest they have seen it really doesnt make me feel any better but at least it was caught early. My results are below:

2 of 12 biopsies were cancer
Gleason score 6 in both
trace amount of blood in the urine 1 year before was my only symptom.
However, it does run in both sides of my family.

Not sure where to go from here. I have narrowed it down to radiation or surgery but, with both options, its a hard pill to swallow. Your blog is great but, if possible, I would love to talk to you sometime since our situations are so similiar. My name is Chris, I live in the Houston, TX area and my number is 832-350-6200, email: cvarga@hilcorp.com. Call or email anytime. Thanks

Treatment with Oncozul brings important benefits to the patients suffering from different types of cancer due to it’s anti-inflammatory, antitumoral, analgesic and immunomodulatory effects. Results of the treatment with Oncozul can be observed in the first ten days from the beginning of treatment to over 90% of patients. Increasing appetite, better sleep and pain relief are the first results the cancer patient can observe in the first weeks of treatment. Because of it’s strong antitumoral effect, Oncozul decreases the size of the tumors with 30% in more than 80% of cases in the first 5 months of treatment. Using the treatment in parallel with chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy, considerably decreases their side effects .

Hi all, Prostate cancer is usually discovered in mature men, but may be discovered in youthful men as well. As a man years, the prostate can expand. This situation is known as harmless prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. This situation is not cancer, but may require medical procedures to correct.Unfortunately, the the signs of BPH are the same as the indicators for cancer. There is no way to tell apart the two without a medical evaluation and possibly a biopsy of the prostate tissue.

Recently, prostate cancer has received the dubious honor of being the most common male cancer in western society. Prostate cancer is usually a very slow growing form of tumor, and often don't require treatment. This is different to other forms of cancer that can grow quickly and spread to other areas, such as the bones, causing severe pain.

Hello, my name is Ari, I am a survivor (so far...) of two cancers, a widower of a cancer victim (now re-married..) and is dedicated to fighting cancer, and helping others do so.
I lived in Toronto, Canada (my family is in southern California), and last year, after marriage, I moved to the Philippines. I am majority owner of a Dialysis clinic, and built a unique cancer clinic, the one I dreamt of having when my first wife was struggling. I took her to Mexico clinics twice, for treatments (which were very successful!), talked to dozens of physicians, and always found lack of properly equipped clinics, which could do a lot better if they were.
Along the way, I have gained insight of how proper Hyperthermia should be applied. This is a method which doubles the success rate of conventional therapies, and alternative ones as well, provided it is done properly. I have purchased the most powerful device for this, and added two other types of devices, which when applied in the right order, prevent a process of DE-sensitizing of cancer cells to the effects of specific frequency hyperthermia. We also do mild whole body hyperthermia in order to strengthen the immune system (with no side effects),and help reach the right thermo-therapeutic levels within the tumour.(the right temperature simply destroys the tumour...). There are also other aspects to this, biological ones, which for lack of commercial incentive (UN-patentable..) is not pursued by multinational pharmaceutical corporations which control all medical research in the field.
I also introduced other forms of immunotherapy, and alternative cytotoxic elements, such as Helixor, a mistletoe extract, which has three times better success rate then most chemo agents, without the side effects.
I can give information about many clinics I learned about, (mainly in Mexico ang Germany)

You will find benefits with this particular internal kind of stimulation, because it improves the healing and effectiveness of herbal treatments. So you've to can clearly understand that this gentle pressure applied internally increases a guys ability to "absorb" the herbal treatments. This kind of massage increases "circulation" for that prostate, which inspires your bloodstream stream to maneuver while using area, which leads to healing. In addition, it encourages a guys ability to "eliminate" correctly because of the circulation started up within the rectal walls.
