US Too has been helping prostate cancer patients for a long time. They were founded in 1990 as a non-profit.
Locally, they meet once a month at the Cloquet Memorial Hospital.
Approximately 30,000 men will die from prostate cancer this year. Every year more than 230,000 are diagnosed with prostate cancer. The number increases annually as the baby boomer men age. If you have been diagnoised you should be consider going to listen to their group. Each man tells his story, diagnosis and treatment experience. Personal stories make all the difference.
The American Cancer society is no longer offering their Man To Man Prostate Cancer Education and Support Program. More than ever there’s an urgent need for education, support and advocacy to empower prostate cancer patients and their family, friends and caregivers.
PSA testing can provide a baseline to monitor for early detection of prostate cancer. There are more prostate cancer diagnostic tools and a variety of treatments. US Too has lots of educational materials available at no charge.
