Phil Lesh Announces He Has Prostate Cancer



What do you want me to do,to watch for you while you're sleeping? Well please don't be surprised when you find me dreaming too
-Box of Rain

Years ago, when Phil had liver problems, we were all very worried about his health. But his transplant was successful and, last I heard, his health was excellent. Unfortunately, Phil has announced he has prostate cancer. He says he expects to have a rapid and complete recovery. I sure hope so. And I hope he knows that many of us have him in our prayers.

From JamBase:


LESH BATTLES CANCER

Message from Phil Lesh on 10.26.2006:

What do I have in common with Rudy Giuliani, John Kerry, Bob Dole, Joe Torre, Nelson Mandela, Sean Connery, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Emperor Akihito of Japan, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Colin Powell, Quincy Jones, Roger Moore, Sydney Poitier, and Robert De Niro?


Like them, and along with thousands of other men, I have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Since my liver transplant, my health has been monitored by a crack team of doctors; in the course of this program, I have periodic blood tests and clinic visits. At my last clinic, my doctor noticed that my PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) levels had increased over the last period. He recommended that I see a urologist, and a biopsy confirmed the diagnosis. I have decided to have it removed in early December with da Vinci robotic surgery. Since we've caught it very early, and it's small and slow-growing, I fully expect to have a rapid and complete recovery.


I am feeling energetic as always, and all my scheduled appearances will occur as planned. As you know, I urge everyone to become an organ donor to help save lives. Now, I am also urging all men: speak to your doctor about having periodic regular PSA screening for early detection of prostate cancer- you may save your own life.

There's definately a lot you can do to take action against prostate cancer. Vitamin D and other herb supplements are great to promote prostate health daily and there are also foods that help your body fight against the cancer. And the new discoveries for prostate cancer treatment and removal have never been so cutting-edge. You can definately get through this!

Generic Viagra
Thanks for the great blog . I really enjoyed reading, I am a 54 year old man and I had problems of erectile dysfunction but it already was a stage closed in my life I find the solution Generic Viagra Soft Tabs is a new product that is used to treat sexual impotence in men. These soft tabs are based on the same active ingredient as other erectile dysfunction pills: sildenafil citrate. Therefore, patients will experience the same results and satisfaction as with any other brand name. The desired effects should start appearing shortly after the tablet is dissolved under the tongue.
Generic Viagra Soft Tabs is also a Cipla product. This pharmaceutical company is famous for providing top quality medications after 70 years of experience.

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.
