Sidney Thompson has had only one really bad day since being diagnosed with prostate cancer five years ago. It came in July 2008, when he learned that his prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level had risen to the point where he would need chemotherapy.

“That afternoon I was dumpy,” recalls Thompson. “The next morning I made up my mind. I’ve always been a fighter. My parents instilled in us that it’s better to think about how to accomplish something rather than sit around and mope.”
