Written July 13, 2012 When I first announced back in April that I have a new health challenge on the horizon in the form of prostate cancer, many people expressed interest in staying informed about my progress and I promised to post updates here on my blog on a consistent basis.
In my last update, I mentioned that my cancer is localized and has not spread. That is still true as of today.
Over the last several months, I have been on a holistic health protocol involving a very specialized diet, eliminating toxins and avoiding foods which stress or depress my immune system.
As a result, I have lost almost 30 pounds (above is a photo of me prior to changing my diet ; below is a photo of me now)! I want people to know that it is a healthy weight loss, monitored by my medical doctors, to help build my immune system and it is not because of any invasive protocol or directly related to the disease.
This month, I had another PSA test done which shows no change since the first of this year. This is good news! As long as the PSA remains stable or decreases, I will continue the current treatments and assess my condition while considering other options until I am advised by my doctors to take additional actions.
I want to sincerely thank everyone who is keeping me in their thoughts and prayers–your kindness is beyond appreciated by me.
