Review for Us TOO International, Inc., Downers Grove, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a 65 year old Vietnam Veteran who got Prostate Cancer due to exposure to agent orange in Vietnam in 1969...as a combat Medic in the 101st Airborne Division I also suffered from PTSD..having Prostate Cancer from my Vietnam Service caused me to have numerous flashbacks and I found myself not only fighting the disease for Physical Survival but also fighting my now raw emotions of particularly fear and anger...and then I found via another Survivor ( as all men do!) a group of men ( with chapters all over the US) called Us Too...to Support, Educate, and Advocate (SEA) for men and their families who are battling this disease..it saved me emotionally and gave me a legacy worth living for as I now run a group in deep South Texas called Us Too McAllen..this would not have happened if it were not for Us Too International and a guy named Mike Jones who is now the Regional Director in Texas for Us Too...Thanks Mike and all those men and their loving spouses who support us on this life challenging and Life changing Journey...Bob
