I’m proud to announce that Prostate Cancer Foundation Canada has included my prostate cancer memoir in their Reef Knot Kit! Each kit contains information about prostate cancer and is available free to everyone newly diagnosed with prostate cancer anywhere in Canada! 🇨🇦 For more details, please read the Announcement in my local paper.
Initially, I had no plans to write a book. My mind completely shut down when the doctor confirmed that I had cancer. I thought my life was over and didn’t want to talk about it. I just wanted to curl up into a ball and hide. With my spouse’s love and support, I opened up and shared my thoughts and feelings. At first, I started a journal with no plans to share it with anyone.
Over time, I decided to share some of my writing with friends, family and coworkers. With further encouragement from my wife and many others, I continued writing and sharing. The feedback was so overwhelming that it motivated me to write a book. Writing and reliving my experience was a surreal and emotional process. And it took a lot more time and energy than I ever imagined! But it was extremely worthwhile, incredibly therapeutic, and a big part of my emotional well-being. And knowing others may benefit from reading is incredibly heartwarming.
I highly recommend others write too! You never know who needs to read your words!
Reef Knot Kit
It’s profoundly moving, knowing thousands of men and their loved ones will receive my book at no charge. The Reef Knot Kit is provided FREE to everyone newly diagnosed with prostate cancer anywhere in Canada! 🇨🇦
Prostate Cancer Foundation Canada has been providing Reef Knot Kits free of charge to newly diagnosed patients for nearly two decades.
Now that my book is complete and well-received, I still have the need to write! Therefore, I’ve decided to write another book! A coming-of-age memoir set in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia during the 1970s. It may take me several years, but in the meantime, please check out and share my articles published on ProstateCancer.Net. It’s time for men and the men in your life to be proactive with their health.
A PDF copy is also available: February 2021 Prostate Cancer Support Canada Debrief.
The following is an excerpt from the 2021 Prostate Cancer Foundation Canada Father’s Day Walk Run ceremonies highlighting the Reef Knot Kit.
