Patient Resources: Influential Prostate Cancer Blogs

For patients and families seeking advice and emotional support after a prostate cancer diagnosis, there are several online resources available. Whether newly diagnosed or farther along in the journey of advanced disease, online blogs have become a valuable outlet for patients who wish to connect with those in the cancer community who have experienced the disease firsthand.

Below are a few of our favorite prostate cancer bloggers:

  • Prostate Diaries – As a prostate cancer survivor and private practice urologist, Dr. John McHugh offers medical insight into the disease from the perspective of a doctor who has experienced it firsthand. Dr. McHugh details treatment options and personal experiences all with a good dose of humor.
  • Gabe Canales – Diagnosed with prostate cancer at 35, Gabe Canales founded the non-profit group Blue Cure Foundation in an effort to raise awareness for the disease through education and support of prostate cancer research. Now a passionate cancer-prevention advocate, he is a blogger at the Huffington Post where he covers the latest in cancer treatment and prevention.
  • Prostate Cancer-Our Journey – Daniel Sencier first started his blog when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in June 2010 as a way to keep his loved ones informed of his progress. Years later, the blog has become an engaging journal of Daniel’s life as a survivor.
