Us TOO strives to enhance the quality of life for all those affected by prostate cancer.
Us TOO’s primary objective is to give participants a forum where they may compare experiences and discuss matters of interest relating to prostate cancer.
Us TOO advocates for improved treatment options; increased funding for screening, diagnosis, treatment and research; and enhanced understanding and information of prostate cancer’s impact on the lives of men, their spouses/partners and their families.
Us TOO chapter meetings are free and open to newly diagnosed patients, patients currently in their treatment regimen, survivors, family members, friends and healthcare professionals interested in prostate disease.
Us TOO International is a grassroots program started in 1990 by five men as they encountered the many issues brought into their lives when they were diagnosed. They learned that they through interaction with other men with prostate cancer they were enabled to gather information and actively participate in decisions affecting detection, treatment, dealing with changes, and living with prostate cancer. Today Us TOO International is recognized as a leader among not-for-profit organizations. It now serves thousands of men with prostate cancer, their loved ones and caregivers through more than 325 chapters throughout the United States and around the world. With the exception of a small group of 5 administrative employees, it is an all-volunteer organization. As such it depends on community-by-community volunteers and funding for its success. In addition to education and support programs, Us TOO is a strong and effective advocate working to assure that men with prostate cancer have access to programs, medications, and health care professionals they need for the best possible outcomes.
