Dear Friend,

“Be Thankful. Pay it Forward.”

That’s the theme of our end-of-year fundraising campaign, and the message delivered by prostate cancer support group leader Johnny Payne in a video linked below. He’s one of the many prostate cancer survivors who volunteers to help others at a grassroots level at one of the hundreds of Us TOO International support groups throughout the U.S. and abroad.

Us TOO provides prostate cancer educational resources and support group services at no charge. Please DONATE NOW to help us help those battling prostate cancer.

• Every year more than 230,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and approximately 30,000 men will die this year from prostate cancer. These numbers increase annually as baby boomer men age.

• One in six men is at risk of developing prostate cancer and African American males have a prostate cancer incidence rate up to 60% higher than that of Caucasian males, and double the mortality rate.

• Rather than any “quick fix” to prostate cancer, there are many treatment options and side effects each patient needs to evaluate. Educational materials and prostate cancer support services from Us TOO help to provide the knowledge and empowerment necessary for making educated choices.

The American Cancer Society is no longer offering their Man To Man® Prostate Cancer Education and Support Program, which puts a greater onus on the services provided through Us TOO International local chapters and support groups.

Now more than ever there’s an urgent need for education, support and advocacy to empower prostate cancer patients and their family, friends and caregivers. 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 all,
