At the young age of 43, Bill was told that he had prostate cancer. On the way home from the doctors’ office, Bill says everything was a blur: “I remember thinking to myself how I would die and what would happen to my family.” The time leading up to the surgery was difficult for Bill, as he could barely eat or sleep. However, after meeting with a prostate survivors group, he was reassured. “After talking to some of the people at the meeting I thought to myself that maybe I do have a chance after all,” Bill says. He is now helping men and their families with prostate cancer at the Newfoundland and Labrador Support Group.
