I am a PC patient and resent that you label PC as a terminal disease. I, for one, do not plan to die from it. I recognize that PC is often deadly because it is discovered too late to do anything that is more than palliative. However, if discovered early there are many things that can result in a cure. Please consult the MD Anderson website that you reference for several PC survivor stories. Every case must be judged on its own merit. The aggregate statistics are not very good but each patient is a unique case and not a statistic. Please be more careful when using labels such as 'terminal'. If you think about it, every person on this planet is 'terminal'.
