There is always hope. In 2006, at the age of 46, I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. My PSA was over 26 and the cancer had metastasized to the seminal vesicles. After robotic surgery at the City of Hope, 8 weeks of radiation, and 2 years of aggressive estrogen ablation therapy (Lupron, Casodex, and Finestride), I learned today that I just passed the five year mark of having undetectable PSA's. Today is a good day. As treatments continue to evolve, more and more of us will continue to hear those sweet, sweet words, "Your PSA is undetectable." Keep fighting everyone.
