Abstract

If you are a young 57-yr-old, in excellent health (defined as running 3–4 miles a day, playing tennis three times a week, and weighing 150 pounds), to be told that you have prostate cancer and, on top of that, advanced prostate cancer, is very hard to accept. So, I didn’t accept it, at least for a while. My wife, Nancy, accepted it and thereby carried most of the burden for a long time.
