    Might be nice to have a "Just Giving" account.

    You could maybe post a link here.

    I've never been checked and I know I should soon. I'll take your advice.

    I know what you mean, but there are so many diffrent calls on people allready.All i would like is that if you see the post and make an small effort to take the test,all my friends and family have .I'm not shy about my cancer and i can go about my bussnes normally.I have to press a button to pee ,but that can be a plus ;) .but if you catch it earlier you dont need such radical treatment.I was 50 when i was diagnosed

    I was just a little rattled recently and am just getting over it. On June 28, I had to have a small part of my right foot amputated. I can walk ok, but it scared me. I'm afraid I might go through another ordeal, but I know this is no reason to postpone something that is necessary.

    I ended up having a prostate exam when I visited my GP a few years back. Wasn't any specific need at the time, but my GP took the view that as I hadn't had one and I was approaching my 40's it was a good idea. No problems for me, but it's something that needs to be caught early as miller1098 says.

    On Halloween, Caesars lets us dress up in a costume. Many of us like to do it just to get out of wearing a uniform. I used to live in Wyoming for a short while and still have a few things from there:

    The only recognition I got from management was after wearing this on the tables for 2 hours, the eye in the sky called down to request I take off the hat because they couldn't verify who was dealing and they couldn't get a full view of the chip rack.
