Thanks Melissa for posting this. It's unfortunately rather timely, my father-in-law was just diagnosed with that form of cancer.

@Ryan - good man, we've got an active programme over here through rugby (playing with odd shaped balls!) which is very successful in getting the message across

@Julie, I'm very sorry to hear this, thoughts & prayers for a speedy recovery.
