Keep a positive outlook. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and after treatment I’m now in my 5th year of cancer free. I had 2 months of daily radiation with the last day a full 8 hours of radiation (17 radioactive needles robot controlled) stuck in me. About 24 months later diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic. I exist on daily insulin shots in my stomach for the rest of my life. Life has many twists and turns but hang in there!!
