January 30, 2017

Juan is a 78-year-old man from Guatemala. He lives with his wife in a rural part of the country, where he has worked for decades in agriculture. Recently, Juan was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is a very common and very treatable form of cancer. In its early stages, symptoms include painful urination and discomfort in the groin area. Without treatment, it spread to other parts of the body. Recently, Juan has been unable to work because of his symptoms.
