Dwight: I found out I had prostate cancer. I had the prostate removed and found out it had metastasized. So then I came under the care at Summa Health under Dr. Nething. He looks young enough to be my son.
Because he's young, I know that he will be up on the latest techniques involving cancer care. Dr. Nething is helping me control my cancer through medication. Dr. Nething's message is no matter what your circumstance is, don't give up hope. There are things that can always be done.
Cancer doesn't keep me from doing anything that I want to do. I ride my motorcycle, go on vacations.
I do have a message for men about their health in general. Keep up your yearly physical and get your tests done for prostate, colon, whatever's recommended. Even if I can only help one person, that's one more person that I've helped. And try to be a small piece of helping in someone else through their journey.
