Hi, everyone,

My doctor today gave me the path report from last week's surgery, and I have enough information to now talk about my medical problem. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer several weeks ago, and had a radical prostatectomy last week. Jerry Brown, John Kerry, and Colin Powell also have prostate cancer and appear to be doing well. I am doing much better than just a few days ago, and I am hoping that the surgery will be a cure. With prostate cancer, there is a high recurrence rate, but the cancer grows slowly so even if it comes back, I expect to live many more years.

Thank you for your patience and support.

Al

Hi, Al

Thanks for sharing! My father about 7 years ago had a radical prostatectomy, and charged through his 70s, and is heading towards his 80s!
Great to hear you're doing much better. I have 100% confidence that you will have a health filled and full recovery.

Hi Al,
my dad also was diagnosed with prostrate about 5 years ago. It was a scare initially but with the right treatment , he is doing great. He is in his late 80s and looking strong.

So my prayers go out to you and your family.

Hi Al,

My father also had prostate cancer diagnosed 2 years ago and is currently doing well.

I am amazed at your devotion to your teaching work even without the added burden of your medical problems. Thank you so much for all that you have done - it has made a huge positive impact on my life and I'm sure, to that of many others on this forum.

I wish you many more happy years!

Rick

Dear Al,

First of all, very sorry to know about your health condition but I am sure with the advancement of the US's medical treatment and your positive mind, you will be recovering soon.

I guess you have teached us something beyond trading, ie How to be remain positive and able to control one's emotional and feeling despite under extreme difficulties!

May Buddha bless you!

Regards.

Al ,
Thanks You for all that you done . Your work ethic , dedication , transparency and ethics are truly inspirational . As a side note I had my prostrate removed in 2004 with very little affect in my lifestyle . Stay well my friend as you are one of the best.

Dear Al,

I pray that everything will go smoothly at your ultrasound appointment today and the small procedure tomorrow! May God be with you, strengthen you, and comfort you no matter what you need to go through! His grace is sufficient for you as it is for the rest of us.

Blessings,
Cece
