Patient Support: Influential Prostate Cancer Bloggers

Often, the best insights for patients and families seeking support for a prostate cancer diagnosis come from survivors and others who have experienced the disease firsthand. Online blogs have become a valuable resource for patients who wish to connect to others in the cancer community for advice and emotional support.

We have identified a few influential bloggers who have used their blog as a platform to provide inspiration for prostate cancer patients and their families.

— Gabe Canales Only 35 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, Gabe Canales was in the midst of his diagnosis when he founded the non-profit group Blue Cure Foundation, whose mission is to save lives by providing prostate cancer education for all men, young and old. Now a survivor and a passionate cancer-prevention advocate, he is a blogger at the Huffington Post where he covers the latest in prostate cancer treatment and prevention.

— Prostate Diaries As a prostate cancer survivor and private practice urologist, Dr. John McHugh offers medical insight into the disease, details treatment options and shares personal experiences all with a good dose of humor along the way through his blog.

— Prostate Cancer- Our Journey When Daniel Sencier was first diagnosed with prostate cancer in June 2010, he created his blog as a means of keeping his family and friends informed of his process. Four years on, the blog has turned into an engaging diary of Daniel’s life beyond cancer.
