START HERE–>> JR’s Prostate Cancer Journey

This site is a journal of my prostate cancer journey.   I was diagnosed on September 22, 2015. It was a year long journey just to get to a diagnosis, as you will read.  It started with a simple PSA test after my 50th birthday.

I made this site so that I can inform family and friends on my progress. I also think it is therapeutic for me.  So read what you want. Send me questions if you wish with the email at the bottom of this page.  I currently attend the Prostate Cancer Networking Group at the Westlake Village Cancer Support Community center.  I am known as CALIJR on the HealingWell  ( and USToo ( prostate websites.

If you want to start from the beginning, then start with the Annual Check Up link below, or you can just read the latest Post.
