Program Success Examples:

“I was in a state of shock and disbelief when my PSA rose to 8.6 after I had my prostate removed. A meeting of Us TOO put me back on earth when I learned that it happens to many men and is expected. The group then offered a variety of options and I felt alive again.”Les “Us TOO saved my life. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and became confused and depressed. After I learned that I was not alone, and that there were more than 175 other men who share my concern and about 40 that care for me and my feelings at the meeting, I am stronger and have hope. ”Marvin “I was fortunate enough to find out about Us TOO International a month before I had a radical prostatectomy.  Through the members and special speakers, I was able to further confirm my choice for treatment, and get the support that we needed to help us through this difficult time.  The group has been a source of camaraderie, comfort, education and resources for my wife and I over the past 2 years.  Through my participation in Us TOO, I have also become actively involved in community projects that focus on early detection, and quality of life issues for other prostate cancer survivors and their families, especially in the African American community.”Jerry “My father passed away on July 15th after 13 years of battling prostate cancer.  I thank you and your newsletter for bring me some valuable information that I am sure helped alleviate my father's condition.  My consolation is that I stood with him and even struggled with doctors to get a better treatment option until the end. Today, I know more about the prostate than I do about my own female body system and that is thanks in part for your newsletter and all the research I took upon myself to do.  Thank you and may God Bless you and Us TOO!”Belinda
