A new video by Europa Uomo’s member organisation in the Netherlands, ProstaatKankerStichting.nl, explores diagnosis of prostate cancer and the life-changing effect that it can have on men and their families.
Translated into English, the video contains interviews with patients about how they feel about their treatment, and describes the support offered by patient groups.
“Within 30 seconds of meeting the urologist, he tells you… you’ve got prostate cancer,” says one of the interviewees, prostate cancer patient Johan Weijenberg. “In the space of 30 seconds, your whole world flashes through your mind, and the ground falls out from under your feet. In less than a minute you think, what’s going to happen to my family when I’m no longer around.”
