I'm very sorry to hear about that. :(

I am a cancer survivor, I know the toll it takes on families. :(

Did the doctors say that it's definitely not treatable? Treatments have advanced dramatically, they can do alot nowadays.

Prostate cancer is most certainly treatable. Is he newly diagnosed? My husband was diagnosed and treated for prostate cancer last year and is doing just fine now. Prostate cancer is a VERY VERY slow growing cancer.

After much research we opted for him to go to http://www.rcog.com/

What treatment did he have the first time around?

My best friend's dad had prostate cancer last year but he's okay now.
My dad passed away last year, so if you ever want to talk, feel free to PM me.

HUGS!!!

it sounds liek hes a fighter, and hes beat this once! im sure hes strong enough (emotionally) to keep fighting this thing! and if anyone can beat it, those are the ones, those whove beat it once know they can kick this things arse so long as they stay true to themselves!
KEEP FIGHTING and be there for him, he needs your strength. *hopes for his health, and yours* stress is a killer, please hold onto the good things for him.

My mom had cancer, and what I remember most about it all was trying to a) be really informed (google everything--knowledge is power) and upbeat...and b) just remember, miracles happen every single day! The doctors at MD Anderson told my mom that they often sent people home with "no hope", only to have them go into complete remission!

Where there is life, there is hope!

I hate cancer so much, it's a scourge on society. You are not alone, come here to talk to people, and be cheery and positive around your dad!

We'll be praying!
