Have you ever experienced discrimination because of your diagnosis?

We're heard some folks in the community mention being treated poorly by their boss or even being fired following diagnosis. Do you think you've been discriminated against because of your prostate cancer diagnosis?

  1. I can fortunately say no, this has not happened to me. When I was diagnosed with de novo stage 4 prostate cancer, I wasn’t sure how open I was going to be. I knew I could trust my boss and I can credit him for making my initial months far more comfortable mentally, not having to worry about my job. I decided pretty early to be completely open about my diagnosis and the amount of support I got was amazing. All bosses differ. Your mileage may vary.
