12 months ago I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Here’s how windsurfing saved my life.
In 2012 we went on a holiday to Kefaluka in Turkey. I’m an avid windsurfer and the resort embodied everything I needed to get in some quality time on my board. I needed all of my 25 years’ worth of experience to hold onto the sail; the wind was strong and brutal at times. And as I battled with the elements, I noticed I started to get some pain and discomfort ‘down below’. Although there was no physicality to it, I guessed for a man of my age, it was probably just a hernia.
