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

Rating: 5 stars  

Unfortunately, I found out about Us-Too after I had my Prostate Cancer treatment. I would have preferred to know about this organization far in advance of being treated. When I was diagnosed, it hit me like a freight train. I wasn't ready to hear that news. I stepped back, took a deep breath and started looking for answers. I immediately called my freinds that had gone thru the Prostate Cancer issue, I asked many questions. Then I had to make a decision on how to treat. With only a small amount of information, I decided to do the Radio Active seed implant. It's been two years, the cancer is gone. However, if i had it to do all over again, I would first attend several Us-Too meetings to gather information on what other men have done. I didn't like having to make the decision all by myself. The Us-Too group would have put my mind at ease.

I've referred several Prostate Cancer patients to this group.

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

I would like to see more information attached to PSA and DRE results. The doctors should direct a person to this group for information that the patient could use to form a decision.

Role:  Volunteer & I try to be a spokes person for the Us-Too group.
