About the Book

An exceptional book about prostate cancer, successfully removing the mystery that for many, surrounds prostate cancer. Written in a special way describing all that the average man needs to know in order to understand the condition. Special because it isn't page after page of facts and statistics but a personal communication from the author to any reader, particularly men and their families affected by prostate cancer.

Having had a radical prostatectomy, this author knows the facts that matter and the feelings that go with them. You won't read the information in this book anywhere else in quite the same way. There is no medical jargon yet all is explained. The sense of 'we are in this together' runs through the book but with a positive essence. Explanations of how this condition emerges, what actually happens, what causes it and strong suggestions of how to address it, but simply. Revealing facts about lifestyles that pave the way for a prostate cancer to be triggered and showing that by taking a more positive attitude to personal health and welfare, much can be achieved even after a diagnosis.

The author wrote this book after experiencing his own frustration at not being able to find straight answers to his predicament when he himself was diagnosed. A straightforward, truthful and easy to read book.

About the Author

Roger Kenley Dawson is 59 years old. Born in Nottingham, spent recent years in Wales and now living in Cheshire. He was diagnosed in 2004 with an aggressive prostate cancer and had a radical prostatectomy at The Nottingham City Hospital. As Director of a business development company involved with many aspects of business life, he has now shifted that into second place to his commitment to a newfound skill, which surfaced since being stopped in his tracks with this diagnosis. He is married to Vicky and they have four children and six grandchildren. This, together with speaking with many men and their families affected with prostate cancer, has sharpened his awareness of the varying impacts these diagnoses have on families. On his journey back to health he says he has discovered a lot about himself that he never knew existed. He is a realist, keeping two feet on the ground and doing what he can to give others affected with prostate cancer as well as other illness a positive outlook. He says this recent experience has brought about his re-evaluating his life, many things that used to matter, don't, and many things that didn't matter, do. Knowing how private but troubled most men are about this condition, there is an open offer from the author, who has a small team he can call on, to discuss with a fellow patient, either anonymously or privately any aspect of the condition. Contact details are in the book.
