Us TOO in Seattle - Meeting Structure

Us TOO in Seattle Prostate Cancer Support Group meetings are open to men with prostate cancer, their loved ones, friends, and caregivers. Our goal is to provide comprehensive information on prostate cancer, its diagnoses, treatments, side effects, current research and other aspects that may be used to help us make informed decisions about the disease. Us TOO in Seattle monthly meetings offer peer-to-peer interaction and support, plus unbiased information from experts in areas related to prostate cancer including surgery, radiation, medication, psychology, healthy lifestyles, and more.

Spouses, partners, other family members and caregivers are welcome.

 

Each Us TOO in Seattle meeting starts at 6pm with a facilitated discussion between participants followed by an educational presentation at 7pm by a healthcare provider.  Meetings end promptly at 8:00.

 

 

New!

An "Us TOO on the Move in Seattle Group" has been formed.  This new program is an effort to reach out to men with prostate cancer who are unable to attend a scheduled meeting or may have a special need for more immediate support.  Included in each meet will be a chapter leader and 2-3 members who have completed facilitation and advocacy training.  We will coordinate different meeting places as needed.
