Passing of UsToo founder Gerald Chodak

Recommended Posts


I was sad to hear of the passing of Dr Gerald Chodak.

I found him extremely helpful as my consultant early on in my prostate cancer journey.

I was honored and grateful that such a world leader would give me his time.

Later, he was invaluable and inspiring as I developed a mentoring role for other men with advanced prostate cancer.

One Skype call I took from him, he was in Rome, Italy at a conference. It was past midnight there, but he patiently and thoroughly dealt with my issues until everything was covered.

His videos also have inspired and empowered many men and their carers.

A thorough gentleman.

Perhaps his greatest empowerment - starting UsToo - which grew from a collection of men from his surgery into a USA-wide coalition of prostate cancer support groups: https://www.ustoo.org/

Howard Wolinsky, who frequently writes about PCa - especially AS on MedPage Today, is crafting his own obituary that will shortly be published on that website. Howard paid a moving tribute to Dr. Chodak during the AnCan AS call last night; he has known him over 40 years and like Jim, Howard was another mentee.
