The holiday season is about hope and thanks. Us TOO International delivers hope with prostate cancer educational materials and services every day of the year through our network of volunteers, support groups, staff and board of directors. Please Us TOO help others and DONATE NOW.
Our not-for-profit was established in the Chicago suburbs by a group of men with prostate cancer who recognized the value of “learning to cope through knowledge and hope.” Twenty-three years later Us TOO has grown into a network of more than 300 affiliated volunteer-led community support groups, and the work that we do continues to rely solely upon donations and grants.
As we approach the final days of our 2013 “Be Thankful. Pay it Forward.” fundraising campaign, we extend our sincere thanks to you if you’re an active donor. If you’ve not yet donated, we ask for your support with a tax-deductible contribution.
Many people don’t realize that prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men in the United States. That reality hits especially close to home as we mourn the loss of former Us TOO Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chapter Leader Russ Gould, who passed away from prostate cancer last week. Russ was an incredibly positive force who helped hundreds of people understand the powerful combination of hope and knowledge in the treatment of prostate cancer.
Looking ahead to the challenges of the New Year, we recognize that our aging population will result in more people who will be impacted by prostate cancer. And with The American Cancer Society eliminating their Man To Man® Prostate Cancer Education and Support Program, more people will be looking to Us TOO for help. YOUR SUPPORT to help fund the free educational materials and support services provided by Us TOO International is needed more now than ever before.
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 and Happy New Year!
