A Primer on Prostate Cancer Evolved
partner's diagnosis in October, 1999, started my research into prostate cancer.
Soon, I became confident enough to counsel others and point them to resources,
as did other people who subscribed to the prostate cancer email discussion lists.
In March, 2000, I started a project to put all the best information we were repeating
over and over again into one concise document. I drafted it in June, 2000 and
sent it to other educated patients for review. It was ready in September, 2000,
after Dr. Stephen Strum checked it for accuracy. It is now on
the Web for all to see and use.
so many men diagnosed with prostate cancer are not computer
literate and we wanted a way to reach them as well. Dr. Stephen Strum, a world-renowned
medical oncologist, volunteered to review the document, thus beginning two years
of collaboration in the writing of the book.
Finally, in late September,
2002, the 368-page book version, called A Primer on Prostate Cancer, The Empowered
Patient's Guide was published. It is a full-color, fully indexed and referenced
book with a glossary, a resource list and several other appendices.
