Stu has metastatic prostate cancer. He will be doing chemo & hormone therapy. No, the survival rates aren't good for prostate cancer this advanced and at his age (55). It's like getting breast cancer young -- it's more likely to be aggressive. And this one is aggressive. As far as we can tell, no tumors in the prostate itself.
We will appreciate any prayers, well-wishes, etc. For those who are Catholic, St. Peregrine may be of interest.
