Hope for others?

I don't normally do this but found myself unusually overjoyed with the contents of a letter I received this morning. It is now seven years since my prostate cancer surgery and my six monthly PSA blood test just came back undetectable ---AGAIN!

There is life after cancer.

OK I know it isn't anything to do with AF but I know others here may have been where I have.

Well done Bob! Now shout it from the rooftops so that other men are inspired to go see their Doctor if they have any unexplained symptoms. Early detection is a must. I had skin cancer and am now on a one woman mission to remind people of the dangers of sun bathing!
