About The Book:
From the jacket:

Prostate cancer is no joke. However, this book combines humor and facts about diagnosing and treating this insidious disease. The myriad of sometimes embarrassing situations and uncomfortable circumstances experienced by the patient are looked at from a witty and informative perspective. Humor helps to break down communication barriers and maintain a positive frame of mind in coping with the disease and supporting the healing process. This book leads to the laughter and comedy needed by any person or family faced with the realities of prostate cancer.

"Too often it is easy to overlook the emotional and personal impact of cancer when analyzing it clinically. Fortunately, Chad and Clayton are here to provide a humorous insight into a serious problem. Prostate cancer is a widespread and troublesome problem within many communities. Certainly a majority of my professional life is devoted to the detection and management of this disease. Prostate cancer, however, continues to remain a mystery for many. Raising public awareness of prostate cancer is paramount to promote early screening and encourage further research. I applaud efforts to broaden prostate cancer awareness and what better way to expose this insidious disease than through comedy."
Dr. John J. Keizur, M.D.
Board certified urologist
