On Saturday night we lost another of the true champions of the prostate cancer community.
Ric Masten, who had fought the disease for over 10 years passed on to a better place.
A link to Ric's website is and will remain on the left side of this page.
I have written about Ric here before, we exchanged messages a few times in the last year. I wouldn't pretend to know him but his website has been a real inspiration to me over the past three years.
I was truly saddened by this news. Ric was a poet, an artist, a minister and a friend to many.
Today I had my port installed. No complications to report. The procedure went very smoothly. My neck hurts a little, but that is to be expected. They made a small incision at the base of my neck on the right side and then about a two inch horizontal incision on the right side of my chest. I basically have a little bump on my chest. The staff at KU Medical Center were all wonderful, more details to follow.
