I am senior vice president of communications for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and author of a popular cancer blog, www.mynewyorkminute.org. Ironically, I was diagnosed with my own case two years after joining the foundation. Having spent the previous two years urging men and their families to "make prostate cancer something to talk about," what else could I do but go public and blog? It is a rewarding and therapeutic endeavor that enables me to meld personal experiences with my inside perspectives of the latest treatment breakthroughs and issues related to the disease.
In my years of writing I have covered a wide range of topics ranging from food and entertainment to science and technology. including nanotechnology and cancer research. Like many of us, there is a novel brewing inside of me. If it ever is published, I might just have to take a pen name.
