  1. You’re right, being open about these issues is one of the best ways to “raise awareness” – as in, raise other people’s awareness of their own bodies. Given Jen’s recent honesty on her blog about what she’s being going through, I have to say that you are definitely your daughter’s father 😉

    Thinking of you,
    Jo

  2. Thank you Digital Dame. I am confident that all will be well in a few months from now.
    Yes Jo, and being my daughter’s father will always be the source of my greatest pride, even though it is to Granny Anne that most of the credit is due.

  3. The good news in all of this is early diagnosis and medical progress. Over the past 20 years, I’ve had three very good friends who’ve been in your shoes. One was treated with gold implants, one received chemotherapy and one was treated with medication. All three are thriving.

    Another friend’s father didn’t fare so well, but he was 75 when the prostate cancer was diagnosed, and it was well advanced. He hadn’t been to the doctor for ten years, which sort of proves your point.

    And of course this is a timely reminder to (ahem) someone else I know that perhaps it’s time to stop fiddling about and go get those screenings that are so important!
