Thank God for this article. I'm just starting year 9 as a stage 4 prostate cancer survivor and from the start of recuperation back in 2009, I know that I confused both family and friends when I stated that my cancer was "the best gift that I ever received". Despite the loss of 'traditional intimacy', my relationship with my wife has NEVER been better. Even without sex several times a week. It's evolved. My attitude toward the cancer is that I've had so many good days, even with Chemo, and if/when the time comes, so be it. I've been blessed. Your article is an affirmation of MY attitude,now ingrained in my ongoing treatment.
