About Penny J.
My sweet man was diagnosed in 2012 at the age of 54. He had regular doctor appointments with all the standard tests. His PSA came back in October of 2012 at a 6. A referral to a urologist and a biopsy within a month. Gleason score of 9. He had symptoms for about two months prior to his appointment. Surgery in December, radiation, and then hormone therapy in late 2014. By February of 2015, we knew that it was on the move. Chemotherapy and an amazing oncologist at UM Hospital in Ann Arbor bought us nine more months. He died December 12, 2015 at 57 years old.
