Prostate Cancer

Being diagnosed with prostate cancer did not come as a complete shock. Cancer in various forms has been one of the generational realities on my mother’s side of the family, and my own history going back decades has included treatment of a series of skin malignancies, most notably, a stage 2 melanoma. So with an uncle who had also been diagnosed with prostate cancer in his early seventies, I figured it was just a matter of time before I would be dealing with the same issue.

My name is Edward Enoch, and I am from Lansdale, Pennsylvania. I was sixty years old and two years retired when my life took a startling turn.

Like millions of other retirees, my wife Janice and I were updating our health insurance. We met with an agent who asked that I schedule a routine checkup. I thought nothing of it at the time—after all, I had no complaints about my health. However, once I received the results of my blood test, the confidence I had regarding my health started to waver.

I’ve been a tennis coach for nearly 17 years, the last dozen at Legacy Youth Tennis and Education in Philadelphia. I run group clinics and offer private lessons. I specialize in movement and footwork training, as well as video-based training. My students range from kids as young as five to professional tennis players. I’m an active coach. When I teach my students how to do something, I want to show them I can do it. They’re amazed at how good I am!

I am 78 years old and have owned horses for 68 of those years. I am a cowboy through and through. My father gave me my first pony when I was just five years old and my first horse when I was 10. I have had hundreds of horses since. I also used to train the ponies down at the race track.
