9781449061272: Cancer is a Four-Letter Word: A Pilgrimage into the Emotional, Sexual, and Spiritual Aspects of Prostate Cancer.

Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men today, closely following lung cancer. About one man in six will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. But only one in 35 will die from it. More than two million men in the United States who have been diagnosed at some point are still alive today. I am one of them. My book, Cancer is a Four-Letter Word: A Pilgrimage into the Emotional, Sexual, and Spiritual Aspects of Prostate Cancer, chronicles my own experience with this terrible disease. From early diagnosis, fear, and panic, to shopping for the best treatment, to surgery and subsequent recovery, I trace not only the physical journey of getting my stamina and good health back, but also the psychological and sexual implications. My format includes an interweaving of my own story of prostate cancer with other men's stories, along with open-ended questions at the end of each chapter to keep men and their partners talking late into the night. There's also a resource list to provide support for a lifetime. Although concise and easy to read, my book doesn't hold back any personal details. Readers will learn what to expect in regard to diapering oneself post-surgery, working through debilitating depression, and forging the uncharted territory of a different kind of sexual intimacy. More importantly, they'll hear about learning to accept support from loving friends and how to talk to God in a whole new way. Rarely does a reader find an account of experiencing God's overwhelming love and grace in the same chapter as explicit details on how to give oneself penile injections to overcome erectile dysfunction!

About the Author:

Larry Kreps was diagnosed with prostate cancer at age 53. Many times as a pastor, huddled with a family in a hospital waiting room, he heard the word "cancer" when a doctor shared with the family the outcome of a biopsy. These experiences did not protect him from the same shock and fear of hearing his own diagnosis: CANCER. The cancer came toward the end of a four- teen year pastorate at John Wesley United Methodist in Cincinnati, the building of a church addition, the last child leaving home and general tiredness. The cancer capsized his emotional, physical and spiritual well- being. He became depressed. He searched for ways to regain a satisfying sex life with his wife, wandering through a maze of pumps, pills and needle pricks. The love of God that held him up preceding and during surgery seemed to drop him in the midst of recovery. Worn out, he stepped out of his career and responsibilities for a year's sabbatical. The depression proved to be situational. A new way of relating sexually as a couple delightfully emerged. The sense of God's presence erupted in color on a gorge path in October. Larry now serves St. Andrew's United Methodist Church in Findlay, Ohio. He actively pursues his "sooner than later list", those things he wants to do with his gift of renewed life. They include hiking down and up the Grand Canyon with his family, playing golf on what use to be the family farm, writing, and his new ministry goal: show up and have fun.
