Don Truckey: The Story of a Young Survivor Who Didn’t Go Limp


Prostate Cancer (Sex) Diary E-Book Published in Canada
A Chronicle of the Not-So-Hard Facts About this Prevalent Disease

Toronto, ON.  It is the side effect of prostate cancer that the medical profession doesn’t like to talk about, especially in Movember – severe or total erectile dysfunction.  Oh yes, and encountering adult diapers and catheters way on the young side of ninety.

The Canadian Writers Group has just published journalist, author and prostate cancer survivor Don Truckey’s new e-book My Prostate Cancer (Sex) Diary: The Story of a Young Survivor Who Didn’t Go Limp. Available now on Kindle and Kobo, Truckey’s e-book is an extremely frank personal account about prostate cancer treatment. It has been written for people who want to hear the straight goods, not necessarily from a doctor, about what it means to be diagnosed with this often-treatable disease – there will be 23,600 men in this country who get the news this year alone. 

Don Truckey is an award-winning screenwriter whose work includes the television series Street Legal and Urban Angel. He has written two movies with hockey as their theme: the Gemini award-winning Net Worth and Chicks with Sticks, as well as Crazy Canucks about Canada’s Olympic Ski team. His first book in the Caraway Kim Series, The Adventures of Caraway Kim . . . Southpaw was published in 2005 and was shortlisted for the 2007 Rocky Mountain Book Award.

Truckey, who lives in Toronto, went from writing screenplays to chronicling sex and prostate cancer after being diagnosed with the disease at fifty-four.  His personal diary is witty, easy to read and takes on every prostate cancer taboo. Truckey has recorded a short video in which he talks about the new e-book
