While many people may retire from their jobs, no one will return to run the entire company. Then again, the drive and determination of the S customer is different. S client is a trio of prostate cancer survivors who now balance his time with his family, various campaigns, fundraisers, cancer research and advocacy for cancer patients - in addition to running POP! Food at Tukwila.

In middle age, he was first diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2003 during a routine exam. After talking to friends and conducting their own research, S clients sought care from B, md, an expert at the prostate cancer center of the cancer health alliance in Seattle, a professor of urology and director of the prostate cancer institute at the university of Washington school of medicine. S. client and his wife were impressed by Dr. B and his credentials, and he was a survivor of prostate cancer. Neuroprotective radical prostatectomy. Dr. B treated S's client's cancer, called neuroprotective radical prostatectomy, in which all of the prostate and seminal vesicles were removed. S client has other treatment options, but he feels that surgery is the right choice for him.

Neurosparing surgery was successful, and S clients did not experience the two major side effects of prostate surgery: ence or incontinence. "I don't want to be a diaper," he said. S customers started walking the next day, although it was painful. He was told it would take six weeks for him to recover, but soon returned to work part-time.

Open about cancer
"Some men never tell anyone [they have prostate cancer]," S says. "it's scary to find out you have cancer, and you don't want to tell anyone."
"Men don't know what the prostate is," Dr. B said. "they don't know where it is. They don't like to talk about it. "
Client wife, a marriage and family therapist, encourages S client to open up about his illness with family and friends. "I pushed him because I felt bad holding it," she said. "But he really makes it easy for people to come to him. That love and support really helped him recover, and just before the surgery he was really anxious. "

Repeat cancer and life changes three times
After S client underwent a radical prostatectomy in 2003, his doctors closely monitored blood levels every three months to make sure the cancer was gone. But in March 2007, for nearly four years, S customers' cancer had returned. His gleeson score is 7, and his PSA is rising rapidly. Client S returned to SCCA in June 2007 for 36 days of radiotherapy, attended by professor K of radiation oncology at UW medical school.
Cancer is one thing. "But getting it back is worse. You realize that you can easily get it again, and every pain or pain becomes fear, worry. I fear that one day I shall die. "

All of these ideas led S customers to take their families on eight-month trips. They traveled to 22 countries, 75 percent of them in the third world. His children then, in June 2010, S clients sold their businesses and in August 2011 moved their families to Florence, Italy, to enroll their children in international schools. The customer of S needs frequent PSA monitoring, and as his PSA is elevated, Dr. B requires further testing. PET scans in Italy showed a recurrence, so the S client was facing cancer for the third time. While they plan to move back to Seattle in August 2012, S client and his family now have another reason to do so. In September 2012, S client underwent salvage pelvic and retroperitoneal lymph node dissection to remove cancerous lymph nodes. The surgery was performed by Dr. B, md, chief of urologic oncology, and professor of urology at UW medical school. S client said, "I think I'm the second person to have an operation at UW medical center." Since then, he has been cancer-free.

Four years later, the PSA of S customers began to rise again. The cancer is back. For the third recurrence of cancer, the S client began to receive plasma therapy at the SCCA proton therapy center. Radiation and hormone therapy. He began treatment in the fall of 2016, including 36 days of proton therapy and ongoing hormone therapy. "It's a harder diagnosis," S client said. "But I keep a positive attitude. I do yoga seven days a week. "He thinks his yoga regimen helps with treatment with almost no side effects.

Patient rotation
When his client S was first diagnosed in 2003, he decided to host breakfast to raise money for prostate cancer research. Such an event was common for breast cancer, but the S client believes his breakfast was one of the highest for prostate cancer at the time. UW medical development director helps S clients plan an event called survivor celebration in early December 2003. "The goal of breakfast is to get the disease out of the closet," says S. "We asked men with prostate cancer if they were captains and if they had a table. To date, more than 7 million people have attended the annual event, which has been attended by prominent cancer survivors including LA and CP. All proceeds are donated to the prostate cancer institute, a collaborative effort between UW medicine and the Fred Hutchinson cancer research center to develop new treatments and skills for prostate cancer.
Along with his annual breakfast fundraiser, S clients and his daughter meet for various cancer support groups and events. "I will never stop fighting for a cure for cancer. S client says, "I am an advocate for helping people diagnosed with cancer or getting their cancer back. "I'll do it for the rest of my life."
