One out of every nine men will develop prostate cancer during his lifetime. Today, nearly 3 million American men are living with prostate cancer, and that number is projected to climb to more than 4 million over the next five years.
Through prostate cancer support groups, online support services, newsletters, educational materials, events and more, Us TOO aims to help transform resignation into determination and fear into hope for those diagnosed with prostate cancer. The organization, founded by people directly affected by prostate cancer, helps men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their loved ones make informed decisions about disease detection, active surveillance, treatment options and management of side effects.
