I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on March 15, 1998.

I was angry.
I was in shock.
I was sad.
I was grieving.
I was scared.
I was a cancer victim.

Since I was unable to travel, I built a studio in my barn and recommitted myself to bringing art into being by drawing on my own experiences. Prostate Roar shows the anger I felt with my diagnosis.
