This one stings

Yesterday the prostate cancer community lost another warrior when Brian from New Zealand lost his battle.

Brian and Kim reached out to me right after his diagnosis and we stayed in touched regularly throughout his courageous battle.

Here is something Kim sent me almost three years ago to the day (11/28/08) "As you know it is one hell of a roller coaster ride -this prostate cancer. I'm just glad he is still here. It's not an easy road when cancer comes into your life but..I guess if things were easy we would take everything for granted and never really understand and savor the special things in life."

Brian, I never had the opportunity to meet you in person, but you were a brother for sure. Kim, words will never fill that void, but may the peace and grace of God be with you during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Brian will be missed.

The death of one of us PCa men is always sad.

What comforts me when I get a report like this one is the fact that there may be five or six updates on the Yana site from men who have not succumbed. That gives me strength to continue - as do people like you David, who battle far greater odds than mne.
