  1. This was such an inspiring story. Most persons only show interest in the topic of cancer when it hits home but it really is something that needs to be discussed more openly. Jeff was very open and honest and it really was a pleasure to have joined this conversation. I learned so much.

  2. Thank you for being so transparent Jeff. I had no idea what PC entailed and the length of the healing process, this is all new to me. I am encouraged to speak to the men in my about this in more depth. Thank you again.

    1. Thank you very much. It is important for men to learn and be aware of the dangers that awaits them if they don’t get checked out at the first sign of changes in their body behaviour.
      Symptoms of prostate cancer can include:

      needing to pee more frequently, often during the night.

      needing to rush to the toilet.

      difficulty in starting to pee (hesitancy)

      straining or taking a long time while peeing.

      weak flow.

      feeling that your bladder has not emptied fully.

      blood in urine or blood in semen.

  3. Greetings Jeff, Gratitude to you for sharing your journey following your diagnosis of prostrate cancer. I hope you continue to share your precious experience with others, at the same time providing education about it. Your talk was so very inspirational and emotionally tangible. May God continue to give you strength.

  4. It was a pleasure to participate in such an important event for men and the women in their lives. Prostate cancer as we all know is a silent killer and it doesn’t just affect to physical but your mental state of mind. Prostate Cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence this is why I always believe, early detection is the best protection #cancerdontletitwin
