Saturday is the first day of summer and the longest day of the year! Making the most of every minute is a great approach to enjoying the summer and to living life to its fullest. It also speaks to the importance of the month of June being Men’s Health Awareness Month.
Know that during the month of June—and every month—more than 2,400 men in the U.S. will die from prostate cancer; it’s the second largest cancer killer of men following lung cancer. During the next 12 months about 30,000 men will lose their battle with the disease and another 230,000 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Since 1990 Us TOO International chapters and support groups have facilitated survivors sharing valuable tips and advice with each other; and the nonprofit has developed and distributed free resources and comprehensive information for prostate cancer…
Advocacy & Awareness Initiatives
Help Us TOO continue to help those battling prostate cancer.
The effective diagnosis and potential treatment of prostate cancer require a series of informed decisions that are specific to each man—from when to begin testing for the disease, to choices about active surveillance, treatment options and the potential impact of side effects on a man and his spouse or partner, and his overall quality of life.
For nearly 25 years, Us TOO has empowered the prostate cancer community with hope by providing opportunities to gain the knowledge that’s necessary to take control of managing the disease.
Providing resources for informed choices requires funding. Previous financial support for Us TOO from the pharmaceutical industry has decreased while the need for our services in the prostate cancer community has increased.
Although Us TOO operated at a deficit last year, we’re committed to the continuation of our mission of providing prostate cancer support, education and advocacy. But we need your help—now more than ever.

On behalf of the board, staff and volunteers at Us TOO International, those we have helped in their battle with prostate cancer, and those we will help -- Thank You!
My best to you,
