Last year I found out I had prostate cancer and I had surgery to remove all the cancer in Oct. 2009.
It has been and will continue to be a life changing event. I now spend more time with family which means less time racing and less time at work (no overtime). It's a shame it takes something so drastic to wake you up and see what you have been missing such as Grand kids growing up, spending valuable time with my daughter and son in law and doing things with my wife other than racing.
I did manage to take the car out a couple times this year and ran a 8.95 @ 149 which was a new best but the car has now sat for months and I have no regrets about that.
This week I got my 1 year blood test back and it showed negative.
I thank God for a 2nd chance at life.

Congrats to you too! Was in your spot 2 years ago. Went with the "seeds" ( so my wife could find it easier in the dark ). Good to go too now with PSA #'s in the .01 range now. If I could only get my RT #'s that low - - -

Congrats on the clean bill of health. I have seen first hand the changes it makes in peoples lives who have had to endure cancer and the effects to those around them. Way to keep your priorities in order.

Glad to hear everything is GOOD. Hang in there and NEVER give up!!! This Feb. made 8 years for me being Cancer free since my Bone Marrow transplant. You can work out and x-cise and get back in good shape and get to feeling good again. I have seen to many just sat down and feel Sorry for themselves.That's not the way I want to live my life.Again good luck to you.Billy
