    I have seen a few articles telling people what NOT to say to us cancer patients. But not so much on what we like to hear.

      "I appreciate you and all that you do", "I care about you", "I'm glad to see you!", "What would you like to do, that you haven't had the time or energy to do?", "Here's a roast chicken dinner with homemade mashed potatoes, because I know you don't feel like cooking" and my favorite: Sometimes I just want someone to hug me and say, "I know you're having a rough time...here's a cup of coffee...and 5 million dollars!"

    True words, prostate (and other types) cancer doesn't get much airplay or "awareness".

      Of course I am a Braves fan, but Freddie Freeman the first baseman lost his mother to melanoma so he does a lot for melanoma awareness. He also does an announcement before the game sharing his mom’s story and encouraging everyone to wear sunscreen in the park. They even have sunscreen stations around the park. As a melanoma survivor I thought that was pretty cool! His mom would be proud!

      I have started to see sunscreen stations popping up in lots of places, I think that's a great idea. But if everyone is like me, I keep it in my truck and rarely remember to put it on. But I do have a big floppy hat that Donna bought me to keep the sun off of my neck.

      We went to Nats park in the spring and I had it in my purse. My brother in law was not too happy when my sister made him put some on. But he won’t argue too much when I am around ‘
