AIR DATE: September 10, 2013

More than 200,000 men in the U.S. are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. Approximately 29,000 men will die from the disease annually. Many men don't get tested or face the disease because of fears of what treatments could do to their quality of life or their sexual life. We'll hear the story of Jerry Grippe, a Las Vegan who recently had prostate surgery and is undergoing treatment. He'll tell us what life is like after the procedure.
