Terrific organization! I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and started to attend their meetings and realized that I was not alone with this dreaded disease. The meetings totally changed my attitude and I am currently a 7 1/2 year survivor. Because of this I have become the chapter leader in the Buffalo area and greatly enjoy my volunteer duties with this organization. I highly recommend people with prostate cancer to look into the great work that these support groups perform

When I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in 2009 I knew absolutely nothing about prostate cancer, its treatment, my prognosis, or that even more men in the US are diagnosed each year with it than women diagnosed with breast cancer. Us TOO has been an invaluable resource for educating myself so I can make informed decisions as I live the remainder of my life with this disease. Even more importantly, Us TOO has a panoply of resources and activities to help me educate and advocate on behalf of others, as well as to reach out and "be there" for individual men with prostate cancer, who are just beginning their journey.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In addition to what I've learned, being able to attend Us TOO-sponsored conferences enables me to network with other men and women doing the same kind of education, support and advocacy all over the country.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Figure out how to help increase the reach of Us TOO in the community at large to raise awareness.

I have been a member of Us TOO Intl., Inc., Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network as part of the Wichita, Kansas Chapter since 1996. With well over 300 chapters worldwide, this non-profit organization must count on funding from whatever source to provide support to this vast number of chapters. A visit to their website will gave the reviewer a better understanding of the involvement of this Prostate Cancer Support organization in so many necessary areas.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through the multitudes of patients have come to meet and know who participate in other chapters throught the world.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage financial support to help continued growth and availability of even more support to the many chapters who are providing to thousands of patients and their caregivers either newly diagnosed or experiencing the concern and worry of recurrence of thier disease.
