About The Book:
From the jacket:
Prostate cancer is no joke. However, this book combines humor and facts about diagnosing and treating this insidious disease.
The myriad of sometimes embarrassing situations and
uncomfortable circumstances experienced by the patient are
looked at from a witty and informative perspective. Humor helps to
break down communication barriers and maintain a positive frame
of mind in coping with the disease and supporting the healing
process. This book leads to the laughter and comedy needed by any
person or family faced with the realities of prostate cancer.
"Too often it is easy to overlook the emotional and personal impact
of cancer when analyzing it clinically. Fortunately, Chad and
Clayton are here to provide a humorous insight into a serious
problem. Prostate cancer is a widespread and troublesome
problem within many communities. Certainly a majority of my
professional life is devoted to the detection and management of
this disease. Prostate cancer, however, continues to remain a
mystery for many. Raising public awareness of prostate cancer is
paramount to promote early screening and encourage further
research. I applaud efforts to broaden prostate cancer awareness
and what better way to expose this insidious disease than through
