Prostate cancer survivor John Aguzino and his daughter Celeste discuss his prostate cancer treatment journey and the importance of prostate cancer support networks.

The importance of support networks for men undergoing treatment for prostate cancer can not be understated. Men might be less prone to opening up about their health, but prostate cancer is highly treatable and there are support networks available. Many of these prostate cancer support networks engage survivors to talk about the disease, treatment options and post-treatment quality of life expectations. John Aguzino is one of those survivors.

“As soon as you found out about the Chicago Prostate Center and decided this was the treatment option you were going to pursue, your stress level went incredibly down.”

“You’re going to get through this. You are still going to be as active as you were.”

Watch and listen to Celeste Aguzino and her father John talk about his prostate cancer treatment experience with Dr. Brian Moran and the Chicago Prostate Cancer Center.

If you or a loved one have been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, it is imperative that you learn about all of your treatment options including brachytherapy. Doing so increases your chances of becoming cancer free and enjoying the quality of life you want. Contact patienteducation@isoray.com for more information.
