I'm really sorry to read that you have to go through this, but I've read that every man, eventually develops prostate cancer as part of the aging process. My grandfather never went to the doctor until he told my father about his problem. By the time prostate cancer was discovered, it was too late and he died within a few months and 73 or so.
About three years ago, my brother-in-law was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. He had surgery to remove the prostate, and, as far as I know, he is doing quite well and got back to his regular routine place soon after the surgery.
You are right about modern medicine. I think that the fear of prostate cancer will be history very soon.

An interesting footnote on how modern, efficient travel can be disrupted by a storm.
Requires extensive editing before publishing.

By reading this, I see you are a writer's writer. I can only dream of writing about emotions the way you have is this piece. In my autobiography, I wrote about how I felt about my sudden change of life from normal one with paralysis and 20 years of age. I did not use the expanded language that you use, but rather a more direct, statement of the pain, generally followed by something positive ideas to try to overcome the pain and the fear of becoming gradually worse over the years until I was still alive, but totally incapacitated.
I experienced some confusion because I did not know who you were referring to that got Hodgkin's disease. Since you refer to "he" I had to assume that you got the disease and you were writing from the viewpoint of someone else. Regardless of who was suffering, from with inside the person suffering or from outside, someone suffering from being close to the person with the disease, the expression of how one is feeling is superb.

Strange article in the story section. "The food chain of life" is an interesting concept regarding quality. How we became the top predator and conquered every corner of the earth was a result of our survival, and our survival depended greatly on the quality of our action daily, or we would not have survived.
The system that you describe allows most of us to enjoy the plenty of our production without having to do anything of any quality. There is danger in this.

Live For A Cause (Short Story) - 9/9/2013 6:21:26 AM
“Our youth now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.” – Socrates
It is relatively easy to live a simpler life if one chooses to do so. Most people like the convenience of busy shopping malls and commercial strips. Some people live in mountain cottages away from others and don't mind. Some people still camp and sit around the campfire telling stories at night.
Young people of today will make the world tomorrow, like they always have.
Like I always need, your article––not a story––could use some editing, for example, you are confusing their with there.
