Review for Us TOO International Prostate Cancer Education and Support Network, Des Plaines, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I'm a prostate cancer survivor and member of a local chapter of Us TOO since my diagnosis in July 2008. I have benefited immensely through obtaining information concerning prostate cancer, in general, and, as a result, confirming my course of action. I researched the various options and discussed side effects with other survivors and came to the conclusion that proton beam therapy would be best for me. There were several other members of the chapter that provided me positive feedback concerning their experience. So far, all is well after almost 3 years. I have enjoyed the friendship of the chapter people and am very glad to contribute as best I can in providing information and allowing others to confidently make their own individual decisions on treatment.

I have personally involved in monthly meetings in Honolulu and Aiea, Hawaii. I have also participated in chapter information campaigns at seminars and instructional sessions.

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

I would continue to press urologists and others in the medical community to have their patients seek others with the similar diagnosis to attend Us TOO chapter meetings.

Role:  Volunteer & I have helped other prospective patients thru providing information and advising them on possible courses of action.
