The author Pat Walsh lived in silent denial for ten years. In spite of evidence to the contrary, Walsh believed that there was no way he had prostate cancer. His false belief was based on fear and ignorance. Pat believed that if he had prostate cancer, it would kill him or at the very least, rob him of his dignity and manhood.
Pat never spoke to another person about his fears not even his physicians. Thanks to the hard-hitting words of his concerned urologist, however, Walsh eventually received the treatments he needed, and is now a cancer survivor.
Pat's goal is to increase awareness about prostate cancer a disease that affects as many as one in every seven African-American men and one in every eight Caucasian men-a disease that most men choose not to talk about.
Walsh hopes to reach countless other men who face issues similar to the ones he faced. Instead of suffering in silence, or being overwhelmed by fear, ignorance and denial, readers may find that they're not as alone as they thought, and receive some valuable information along the way.
With his optimism and sense of humor as strong as ever, Walsh recounts his battle with, and recovery from, prostate cancer in candid detail-while providing valuable information including a basic understanding of the prostate and prostate cancer, encouragement to speak to others including a physician regarding prostate cancer and an optimism that hopefully will eliminate some of the fear related to prostate cancer.
Still Smiling with a foreword by David B. Samadi, MD Chairman of Urology, Chief of Robotic Surgery Lenox Hill Hospital, Fox News Medical Correspondent and Medical Co-Host of SUNDAY HOUSECALL is a must-read for men and those who love them.
