Advanced prostate cancer doesn't know how resilient I am. Doesn't know how resourceful I am. Doesn't know how determined I am. I enjoy being outdoors. Hiking, kayaking, every chance that I get an opportunity to do that. Now I'm retired and enjoying the freedom to create my own schedule every day. For me, art is freedom. I don't get caught up in trying to draw pretty things. It's more about color and expression. It was so devastating to get this diagnosis out of the blue. It was really pulling the rug out from under me. Any time I've been faced with a challenge in life, I get very focused. So what I had to do was seek out support groups. I had one which was at our local LGBT center that was more of a social and emotional support group. There was another group here in San Diego that held monthly forums that was very helpful for group discussions. So ORGOVYX came onto my radar early.

One needs to review things with their medical doctor and make their choices that are appropriate. Advanced prostate cancer is overwhelming. And you cannot be passive in dealing with this. You need that motivation to get up every day and face what's coming at you. Every day is a gift.

AVO

FRANK
Prostate cancer would look at me and say that I'm vulnerable. But I'm not that type of person. It picked a fight with the wrong guy. My dad being a steelworker—worked every day of his life. Always in the back of my mind, what would my dad do? During the Vietnam War, some very difficult times—you couldn't quit, your life depended on it. But you reach a point in your life, facing the challenges—you need help.

GAIL
When it was diagnosed, we both looked at each other and said, "Frank has always been a fighter."

FRANK
Gail's been my rock.

GAIL
He learned about ORGOVYX through a support group.

GAIL
I've always had the ability to sit down with the doctors and Frank wanted me to do that.

FRANK
With any medication you really have to explore the positives and negatives. When I heard about the medicine, we looked at it in terms of my health, would it be the right thing for me to take. There's a term in football called being a grinder. When it's bad, and you think there's no way out of the hole that you're in, you grind. You can't be a quitter.

GAIL
And don't you ever forget.

GAIL
Advanced prostate cancer did underestimate me. And what I would do, as far as I would go to help Frank. Family, to me, means everything. In my family, I am a caregiver. It's just a routine, I've done it all my life.

FRANK
We got married on June the 24th of 1967.

GAIL

GAIL
After talking with various professional people about the variety of medications that Frank was on and what they were for, they felt this was the route for Frank to go.

FRANK
She's the Major General...

GAIL
No, I'm the little General.

FRANK
...and I'm just the lowly captain.
