When you first find out you have Prostate Cancer, don’t panic, there is help.

 

There are a few cancer centers in the U.S. that are on the cutting edge of diagnosis, research and treatment. It is crucial to put together a great team.

I chose Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston because they not only are one of the best cancer centers in the country,  they also offer alternative therapies, such as acupuncture, massage, and other healing modalities as well as a free gym membership. 

 Here is a list of the ones I found starting with the one I chose.
