Why this book is really valuable. Because prostate cancer treatment can result in "The Two I's" - impotence and incontinence - most men simply won't engage with the topic until they are diagnosed (most of us don't even know where the prostate is or what it does) and no one is going to read a medical book. But, The Trans Am Diaries is a great story about a journey to success in America's most famous city. This is a book that fathers everywhere could (and should) give to their sons when they hit high school. Why? Because it's a fun, coming-of-age story that's a joy to read and because it has embedded within it the messages that prostate cancer can come early and you can come out the other side and be fine. You just need to find it early!
Full disclosure. I created a prostate cancer awareness non-profit in 2006 with the mission of driving awareness and early detection. You can find us on the Internet at ThePCAP.org and our free prostate cancer early detection system at ProstateTracker.org.
A huge thanks to Steven Dupin for writing this book, and to his wife Katie for helping him get through it. I call myself the Accidental Prostate Cancer Survivor because I was diagnosed when my PSA number was within the 'normal' range and my physical exam was negative. As it turned out, I had multiple tumors sitting on the top of my prostate where they could not be felt and no one - least of all me - was tracking the rise in my PSA number from one year to the next. Thus, my creation of ProstateTracker.org.
Some men (1 in 6) get prostate cancer and some don't. For those of us who do, we can pay it forward by talking to the men - and women - in our networks about the importance annual testing and personally tracking those PSA test results.
The PCAP's prostate cancer manifesto is simple - "Every Man has the Right to Know He has Prostate Cancer while it's Still Treatable." Each of us can play a role in making this manifesto come true.
"A word to the wise is infuriating." Hunter S. Thompson. Thank you Stevie D. for a great book that makes that 'word to wise' a delicious trip indeed. I'm giving a copy of my son this week and to my grandsons when they hit 16.
