“Men have to understand that we’re not Superman. We can’t do it all by ourselves.”
When Archie Emmanuel Jr. got engaged to his future wife, she asked him to get a checkup. Until then, he hadn’t been going to the doctor regularly. After the appointment, Emmanuel found out he had prostate cancer.
His fiancé wasn’t afraid. “She told me she had my back,” he remembers. It was the beginning of what would be a truly supportive partnership through his journey to better health.
After his treatment, Emmanuel joined a prostate cancer survivor’s group. “The doctor there said there was a group of guys I should tell my story to,” he says.
That group of guys was MOCHA.
