Hello,

So, does my family member have any chance to survive this advanced prostate cancer?  He called me up and asked me to research for him.  I am still waiting for the LEF physician advisor to call me: I am on the call waiting list.  I was directed to the paper by Dr. Strum.  For my IQ range, it is a tough read; I can't seem to find the advice about what my family member should do.  He says that he is being given options by physicians such as radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, surgery, and so forth, but he does not know which one to do.  Strum's article starts off with cancer prevention - too late for that.  Then he talks about how physicians should love their patient and become one with the science of it, a spiritual connection.  Sure enough.  Then he discusses support groups, charts to maintain, and philosophy.  Very good.   So, I'm half way done with this paper I'm finding very tough to read, and I still can't find an answer, and my family member needs an answer in the next two days. Would appreciate any input, much thanks.

PCRI http://prostate-cancer.org/ used to have a physician's referral list, but it's not appearing now. They do have a help line: 1 800 641 7274 if you want to investigate.
