Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education & Support Network
June 26, 2011

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 www.ustoo.org will gave the reviewer a better understanding of the involvement of this Prostate Cancer Support organization in so many necessary areas.

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.

PCaI has provided and continues to provide professional and knowledgeable information regarding issues involved when diagnosed with prostate cancer as well as the treatment of that cancer both early on as well as when recurring. Every single day the latest information from medical journals is posted on this excellent website with knowledgeable and expert commentary. The site then provides the capability for readers to comment either pro or con or with additional information to support that having been posted. Truly an outstanding website for prostate cancer patients, caregivers, and physicians involved in the diagnosis and treatment of this insidious men's disease.
