Living and Thriving with Prostate Cancer
A conference dedicated to the memory of Dr. Peter Lindberg.
Dr. Peter Lindberg was our dear Friend, Doctor, Teacher, Writer, Speaker, and Mentor.
He wrote a column in the Lifeline for 9+ years, and spoke at the most conferences and support meetings of anyone.
He treated, and counseled, many of our members. He passed away in 2016
When mentioned to his wife Mary that he sometimes signed his Lifeline articles “ I’m just a humble country doctor”, Mary then told this story: this Peanuts cartoon came out in 1959, when Dr. Lindberg was in College. The first panel, Linus says to Charlie Brown, “When I get big, I’m going to be a humble little country doctor.” The second panel, “I’ll live in the city and every morning I’ll get up, climb into my sports car, and zoom into the country.” The third, “Then I’ll start healing people. I’ll heal everybody for miles around.” Finally, in the last panel, “I’ll be a world famous humble little country doctor.” He loved it and it became his mantra.
Join four PCSANM members as they discuss what worked and didn’t work when Informing Friends, Family, Coworkers and Others about your PCa.
Hear from experts on how to stay healthy while living with Prostate Cancer. Presentation topics include diet, nutrition, bone health and sexual health.
Learn about exercise, fitness, travel and treatment costs. Choose two sessions to attend for 45 min each.
Speak with medical professionals, local businesses, and support organizations throughout the day. Local and national exhibitors will be available throughout the day.
