Prostate Cancer

Alan and I grew up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula have been hanging out together for a lot of years… friends since we were 12 and married for almost 38. 🙂

We’ve pretty much seen the world together (except for Antarctica)

And have known lots of happy (as well as sad) times

It’s wonderful to have a companion even into our sunset years!

Alan was diagnosed with prostate cancer a couple of years ago. Last year he had surgery, but his PSA has continued to rise. He says with a sober smile that both cancer and surgery are highly overrated. Yesterday we went to the doctor, who’s recommended radiation treatments. That’s a big step for us, but I’m glad we can take it together.

“But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me (us), I shall (may we) come forth as gold” (Job 23:10).
