I would just like to thank you for creating such a wonderful website. My partner didn’t want to ‘talk’ to other people who had also been diagnosed with prostate cancer so I did it for him . Your site gave me access to the top surgeons who gave us the information we both needed – so helpful . I can’t praise the site enough and will be spreading the word. Thank you very much. You’ve been a Godsend. Hilary (Nov ‘11)
