Prostate Cancer

“Every man dies. Not every man really lives.”

– William Wallace ( Braveheart )

I was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer in 2019 at 42 years old. Since my diagnosis I’ve had surgery, radiation, and medications to put my cancer into remission. It’s been a rough road but I’ve learned a lot along the way. There’s nothing like staring into the lights of an oncoming bus to help you revaluate your life. To collect my thoughts and keep my family and friends up-to-date I started writing about my cancer journey. 

Here’s a collection of my posts.
