Description

Joel T Nowak from Cancer ABCs along with oncology nurse Fran Fanning (co-owner of Heavenly Hash) participated in a prostate cancer patient conference sponsored by Prostate Cancer International.  The conference was held in Ft. Meyers Florida in March of 2019.

They offered a live presentation that described how hormone therapy worked, how it is achieved, its side effects as well as some "grassroots" methods used by men to control the side effects caused by ADT (hormone therapy).  Fran's presentation included information and a discussion about the role of CBD and THC (marijuana) in cancer care.

Both Fran and Joel also answered many questions that were asked by the men and their support givers who were in attendance at the conference.  Although most of the questions were about ADT, they also fielded other related questions about prostate cancer treatments as well as Cancer Thrivership.  

Voice over introduction by Amber Bloom.
