I started this Blog after being diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2010. It was a way of keeping family and friends informed. It then became a campaigning tool helping to make improvements in hospitals nationally. In 2013 we moved to Johannesburg, setting up our own e-education company. Now we have moved to Bangkok, a great base to explore SE Asia. After surgery 7 years ago my PSA remains at zero, the cancer is still undetectable, and I remain thankful.
Within the 'World Cancer Community,' you'll often come across some extremely interesting and dedicated people, who after diagnosis give up a large amount of time to help others. One such person, Joe Bakhmoutski, lives in Melbourne and contacted me recently to record a podcast, which I was only too happy to do. It was rather strange going over what happened over 7 years ago, but it also brought home to me how lucky I was and still am to be here in this wonderful world.
In this episode, I’m talking to Daniel Sencier who shares his perspective in battling prostate cancer, dealing with a broken health system and finding new meaning and a new way of life despite cancer. Here’s what you're going to find out in this interview:
The hammer-blow of your diagnosis

Why starting a blog can help you deal with cancer
