Here's what some past participants have to say about these prostate cancer support sessions:
"I have listened to your last two talks and have gained a lot out of them. I practiced this week some of your suggestions about obtaining intimacy with my wife and I must say I felt a lot better about myself. I only wish I had found your website and teleseminars before making my treatment decision to go with external beam radiation. You manage to keep the facts about prostate cancer and side effects of treatments very simple, direct and informative. Thank you so much for all the work you do in helping men understand prostate cancer and their treatment options." –B.A. (Houston)
"Before my operation I read Rabbi Ed's book in addition to several others, but it's only after the operation that you realize what you have lost. I would very much like to thank dear Rabbi Ed for his great help to men who are living this most unwanted experience."
"I've listened to the recording of both sessions, and have them on my iPod for future use. Keep up the good work! After using Casodex, my partner had a course of brachytherapy a year ago. He’s more concerned about the after–effects than I am. I’m just glad he’s still around." –A.C. (UK)
"I enjoyed the session. Good questions and well answered." – from post-teleseminar survey
