My book, How We Survived Prostate Cancer:  What we did and what we should have done, has been out a little over a year.  The book has a life of its own; it has already helped quite a few people sort out the tricky issues surrounding treatment and its aftermath–especially as a couple.  When I was writing it, more than once I–we–said, “If only one person finds this book helpful, it has been worth all the effort…”  We’ve had the reward of hearing from many strangers and not a few friends for whom the book has made a difference.

Therefor, celebrate with Dean and me the second year of this book’s life.  The Graedons, a couple who host  one of my favorite radio shows, The People’s Pharmacy, originating out of UNC in North Carolina, interviewed both of us via satellite in January.

The interview goes live today, saturday April 17 on WUNC (available via the web at www.wunc.org). It will be broadcast at 3 PM, with a podcast available from wwwpeoplespharmacy.com on monday (show #765). The moment it is available on the PP website, there will be a link to victoriahallerman.com

The show will also appear on radio stations throughout the country (see affiliate list on http://www.peoplespharmacy.com).

An interview with Dr. Ablin, one of the discoverers of PSA, who wrote a controversial Op Ed in the New York Times about the subject, and whose editorial I blogged about in this very column, will also be posted on http://www.peoplespharmacy.com, if you’d like to follow the controversy.

Join with us in celebrating what this book’s mission is:  to share the news about the effects of PCa and treatment, for individuals and for couples. Let us know what you think.  More importantly, please pass the news on to anyone you think may find it useful.

It is fitting that this program airs in April; this month we are celebrating Dean’s 7th anniversary free of prostate cancer.

Thanks for listening–
Vicki & Dean
