Meet Madison-area attorney and prostate cancer survivor Randy as he spoke with us about his journey. As a man, a husband, a dad, and friend to many, he shares his story in hopes of helping you with yours. Get to know him here and then share your story, your concerns, and encourage others who are facing this diagnosis on our Facebook page.
Randy was in his early 50’s when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. A routine test at his doctor’s office turned up an elevated PSA level. More tests and a biopsy followed and a short time later he was at a support group at Gilda’s Club talking with men that had already traveled the road he was embarking upon. Following his successful treatment and recovery, Randy became a Gilda’s ambassador and led their prostate cancer support group for nine years. Now eleven years after his diagnosis, Randy is sharing his story here in hopes it will reassure others facing the decision to screen, and potentially this difficult diagnosis.
