Each year, a group of prostate cancer survivors gathers for a group photo at the Cruisin’ for a Cure car show. My father and grandfather are among them. On Saturday, they and many other men will wear light blue “Survivor” T-shirts and spend the day giving straight talk to other men about the disease. Show founder Debbie Baker has one goal: to make fundraising efforts for prostate cancer just as common as those for breast cancer. She’s run Cruisin’ for a Cure for 10 years now. The show offers free blood testing on-site to detect prostate cancer.

COSTA MESA - First with trimmers, then lather and a razor, members of Costa Mesa's "Team Nuclear" celebrated a month of growing facial hair for charity this week with a clean shave. "When my wife didn't kiss me for 30 days … OK, I have to shave this thing off," Team Nuclear founder John Cornuke said. "It's so liberating.

I was really not very aware of cancer's reach until a friend contracted prostate cancer about 20 years ago. Soon after that, another friend was diagnosed with the same illness and, shortly thereafter, I awoke from a colonoscopy to learn that I had cancer. A year of chemotherapy followed that — along with family love, the care of a superb oncologist, Louis Vandermolen, a support group at Hoag Hospital, and a strong will to survive — completely cured me. All was well for 10 years until I received another grim diagnosis: prostate cancer of a quite virulent type.

When it comes to breast cancer, losing a breast or two and facing deep psychological challenges while going through aggressive treatments that impact your life emotionally, physically and sexually, one goes through a tough, long-lasting journey that will change your life and will drive you to learn about this disease. It can be overcome the first time, there are cases of recurrence and cases where a new cancer arises some time after treatment. While breast cancer treatment and procedures might seem the same, every breast cancer case is unique and every person reacts to treatment differently.

UC Irvine chemists have found a way to detect prostate cancer that's as inexpensive and easy as a pregnancy test, the university announced this week. By identifying markers for the disease in urine, the method can detect prostate cancer's presence much earlier, more accurately and more cheaply than current tests, according to a press release from UCI. "Our goal is a device the size of a home pregnancy test priced around $10. You would buy it at the drugstore or the grocery store and test yourself," said Reginald Penner, UCI chancellor's professor of chemistry and the study's corresponding author.

He likely doesn't know it, but Goose Gossage can be credited in helping lead a Newport Beach team to national victory. The former major league pitcher's distinctive facial hair so inspired John Cornuke, the captain of Team Nuclear, that he decided to grow some just like it. Then Cornuke, along with more than 180 other guys, used their mustaches to inspire others to donate to Movember. They became the top fundraising team in America and fifth worldwide. Their victory, though, is really for all men. The $177,195 that Team Nuclear raised throughout November will go toward Movember's initiatives supporting prostate and testicular cancer awareness and research.

I had a chance to talk with her over the phone this week and go over Saturday's Paddle for Privates costume paddle and learn a little more about this amazing person.

Another deadline has passed in the legal saga of Dennis Holland, the boat builder restoring a historic 1916 sailboat in his sideyard. Another, more serious one, may loom ahead. After Holland, 67, missed the Aug. 30 date to disassemble the Shawnee, Newport Beach city attorneys this week requested Orange County Superior Court appoint a receiver and remove the boat from Holland's Holiday Road property. While this appears to bring the restoration close to its end, Holland remains optimistic.
