Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education & Support Network is a grassroots, registered 501(c)(3) non-profit prostate cancer education and support network of 325 support group chapters worldwide, providing men and their families with free information, materials and peer-to-peer support so they can make informed choices on detection, treatment options and coping with ongoing survivorship. The organization was founded in 1990 by five men who had been treated for prostate cancer.
Each Us TOO support group functions independently, led by local volunteers or a medical professional. Each group holds regular meetings for men living with prostate cancer and their families. The meetings provide emotional support and unbiased information in areas related to prostate cancer, such as treatment options for newly diagnosed or advanced disease, solutions for side effects, and nutrition. Us TOO group meetings are free and open to all men, family, friends, and health professionals interested in prostate cancer.
Us TOO can put patients in contact with prostate cancer survivors and their companions who have already experienced or are in the midst of recovery. These individuals can provide valuable insight into treatment and recovery.
