Dear Friend,

I hope that you're doing well. Here's the latest prostate cancer News You Can Use, which provides a recap of some of the most relevant and recent articles.

Hard as it may be to believe, we’re already halfway through September--Prostate Cancer Awareness Month! Thank you to everyone who has registered and/or donated to the 10th Anniversary of the SEA Blue Prostate Cancer Walk & Run in Chicago on Sunday, September 14th. There’s still time to participate; for more information CLICK HERE.

We’re pleased to be partnering with Wearever men’s incontinence briefs (CLICK HERE). Throughout the month of September 10 percent of all proceeds will be donated to Us TOO. Incontinence can be one of the more common side effects resulting from some prostate cancer treatments. Classic incontinence briefs and incontinence Boxer Briefs by Wearever provide another option for dealing with a little leakage. In addition to being washable and reusable, they look and feel more like regular underwear while providing a comfortable fit and absorbent protection that wicks moisture away from the body. Wearever's incontinence briefs are constructed with sewn-in Unique-Dri™ pads and odor eliminating Agion™ antimicrobial fibers. And since each brief or boxer brief should last for 200 to 250 washes, they are more economical than disposables. Find out more at
