5-year NED snowstorm, newsletter & free books!

Now that I’m officially 5-years NED after prostate cancer treatment with scans and bloodwork showing no evidence of disease, I’m celebrating for the entire month of May!

May Snowstorm

The celebrations started with Mother Nature providing an unexpected snowstorm in the middle of spring! Although it didn’t last long, I enjoyed every minute of it! And the snowstorm inspired me to write a blog and make a YouTube and TikTok video in hopes of amplifying my voice on prostate cancer awareness.

May Newsletter

In continuing the celebrations, I’m proud to announce that I’m featured in the “Our Community in the Media” section of the May 2022 newsletter by Prostate Cancer Foundation BC.

Gogs Gagnon, the incredible author of Prostate Cancer Strikes: Navigating the Storm (a book we proudly share with newly diagnosed patients in our Reef Knot Kits), is officially celebrating 5-years NED (No Evidence of Disease) following his prostate cancer surgery.

Read about his journey here. Or check out his YouTube video on his celebration here

Congratulations, Gogs, and thank you for all you do for our community!

May Free Books

And now for the BIG announcement! To complete the celebrations, I’m thrilled to announce that I’m giving away sixty (60) signed copies of my book, Prostate Cancer Strikes: Navigating the Storm! That’s one book for every month since being NED, but I’m giving them away all at once! Due to shipping costs, I’ll have to limit the offer to Canadian and US addresses only.

As I don’t have enough books with my new cover, I’ll be mailing the copies with the lightning bolts, as shown in the photo. To secure your free copy, be one of the first sixty (60) to send me a private message with a Canadian or US mailing address by May 31, 2022! Please send your address via the contact page or a private message on Twitter before the deadline. I’ll reply to let you know if you are one of the sixty. Although this is costly, it’s my way of giving back in celebration of my 5-years NED!

And please don’t worry if you miss out on this offer, as I’ll be giving away unlimited copies of the ebook version worldwide later this year! Last year, 1,840 people downloaded a free copy, and I’m hoping to beat that record this year. For more details, please read my blog, Thank You for Downloading 1,840 free ebooks!
