Surviving In This Very Moment…

My Personal Battle with Prostate Cancer … And Life!

About

My name is Roger Passman and I have prostate cancer.  More specifically my diagnosis reads adenocarcinoma.  I recently learned that men are 35% more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than women are that are diagnosed with breast cancer.  Holy cow, I thought, why does the NFL wear so damn much pink emblematic of the fight against breast cancer when prostate cancer receives little or no attention.  I am not diminishing the fight against breast cancer, far from it.  But I think it is time for Yes…AND!  Yes, the fight against breast cancer surely deserves attention AND so does the fight against prostate cancer.  Not either/or but yes/and.

I started this blog on October 25th, 2012, just four days after my diagnosis.  I plan on documenting my personal fight against prostate cancer for as long as I am alive.  My goal is simple, post from 4 to 7 entries per week, documenting treatments and personal attitudes.  My hope is that my sharing will be of service to others suffering from this disease, one that kills 88 Americans each and every day of each and every year, a whopping 32,120 men every year and 32,208 on leap year.

  3. Hi Roger,
    Thank you for following my blog. I was drawn to your blog quite awhile ago because of why you started writing it. I am glad you have Survived “that” very moment with your cancer scare. It is great you are still writing and exploring your amazing take at life. It has really helped me more than you will know.

  4. Alesia, I am actually shocked that it took me so long. I truly enjoy our conversations and look forward to more. Today I think of myself as a prostate cancer survivor with a daily reprieve and not a cure. I still have two expected side effects to deal with and a small probability of recurence, about 15%. That’s motivation enough to not think that I am cured. Remission is good enough for me.

  5. Remission is a good thing. Hopefully the side effects will level off. Keep us posted on your progress.
