He is remaining stoic about his future and has the full backing of the players, fans, and both clubs who wish him a speedy recovery. Read more about this story here.

    I wish the coach well. However if indeed his cancer is organ confined and early stage with a low gleeson score I wonder if he was made aware of the less invasive treatments that show equal success. Today Prostate cancer is a fragmented industry and Doctors tend to offer only what they are familiar with. With Toocad Cyber kife, and others that will not destroy your potency its time to demand a thorough review of all treatments for patients.
