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

Rating: 5 stars  

Everything Us TOO does is for men and thier families dealing with prostate cancer. It is the only organization dedicated ONLY to prostate cancer. It is an international organization comprised of dedicated volunteers who provide FREE education and support to all who ask. This international organization only has five paid employees. The other thousands are volunteers. The educational materials are developed by and for patients. Top medical personnel volunteer their services to make sure all publications meet the hightes standards of medical information.
Education is power. Men make informed decisions about their treatments based on experiences of others and good medical information.

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

The decisions I make with my medical team stem from information I received from others who have gone down the path before me. I know I am not alone. I meet compassionate warriors who what to "give back" by helping others.

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

Provide funds to start new support groups in areas not now being served. There are large geographic areas where there is no support group. We need help starting up a group.

Role:  Volunteer & Support group leader for 17 years.
