"Foley's Follies"


I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on Dec. 19, 2001. I have written a series of 10 poems on my diagnosis, treatment and ongoing recuperation. It is unusual for a man to write about his emotions and the possible side effects likely to occur with prostate cancer treatment, and I originally wrote the poems only for myself. Then I showed them to some other newly diagnosed men. I also showed them to my surgeon, who is part of a large practice with 10 offices throughout Central Virginia. The practice is making copies of the booklet of poems available to patients. I would like to offer rights at no charge to the American Cancer Society if ACS would like to publish and/or post these poems. To whom should I send the poems for a determination of whether ACS would like to do anything with them? Sincerely, Tom Morris (email is tom.morris@slaypr.com).
