That Black Men Might Live: My Fight Against Prostate Cancer
Vernon A. WilliamsISBN: 0971606730;
Book DescriptionThrough the personal story of Reverend Charles Williams, this book addresses the important but often neglected issue of black men and prostate cancer. Williams, a leader in the black community and the president of the Indiana Black Expo, relates how even with an extensive knowledge of health care he did not pay attention to his own needs. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer-at an advanced stage. More than a biography, this book discusses why and how black men can break the cycle of health care illiteracy to become aware of their own needs and use the health care system to their own benefit. Black men are encouraged to get early and regular physical exams and are guided through what to expect and what to do if they are diagnosed with prostate cancer.
