Since David Emerson was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer seven years ago, he has fought the progression of his disease with an unusual degree of sophistication and willpower even among the large number of prostate cancer patients who have to try to do this.
It is with great regret, therefore that we refer readers to the latest post (just today) by his wife on his blog site ‘The Big “C”.’
David was often one of the first volunteers to participate in any clinical trials he found for which he met the eligibility criteria … regardless of how far or how often he had to travel. He has been a strong advocate for patients by talking at in-house pharmaceutical company and other meetings to explain just what it is really like to live with aggressive, progressive forms of prostate cancer. And in his spare time he has been an assertive and (politely) pushy fund-raiser for prostate cancer research through his own not-for-profit foundation.
We wish David and his family well during the next few days and maybe weeks. They all need to know that David’s efforts will never be forgotten.
