Prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and strategies
Prostate Cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis for American men today. To help you learn more about it, the Colfax Library invites you to hear author Steven Heaps on Wednesday, February 27 at 7 p.m. when Heaps discusses his book The Rancid Walnut and his experiences as a prostate cancer survivor.
In the book, Heaps explores a world many men experience, but few discuss with both seriousness and humor. The Rancid Walnut contains poems and personal stories as well as factual information about the disease.
Heaps says, “My memoir and self-help book, paints an unguardedly personal picture of my experience with prostate cancer while providing valuable information about the challenges prostate cancer provides in terms of diagnosis, treatment decisions, side effects, prevention and the chances of a cure.”
Steve Heaps is a retired psychologist and college professor. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer and underwent a radical prostatectomy in 2008 and again when he had heart surgery in 2010. Heaps lives with his wife in Spokane and remains active with running, hiking, fishing, camping and pheasant hunting.
