Battling Prostate Cacer Dec 17, 2007
This was a wonderful book. It really gave the reader and inside view of prostrate cancer; causing the reader to urge everyone they know to seek testing. I also ordered this book for a friend of mine who is battling another type of cancer. Wonderful book; wonderful testimony!
