Us TOO International is a nonprofit that serves the prostate cancer community by providing educational materials and resources at no charge. Established in 1990, the organization was founded by—and continues to be governed by—people directly affected by prostate cancer.
To raise awareness and provide educational resources and support services to those affected by prostate cancer to help them learn to fight this disease. The power of Us TOO is in helping men and those who love them by transforming resignation into determination and fear into Hope.
To create a truly patient-centered prostate cancer paradigm that optimizes emotional and physical well being.
In addition to the following list of Us TOO educational resources and support services, there are more than 200 support groups throughout the U.S. and abroad that also help men and their spouses/partners and families make informed decisions about prostate cancer detection, treatment options and related side effects.
More than 160,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. While approximately 27,000 men die from the disease annually, there are nearly 3 million men living in the United States today who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and are managing the disease. This number is estimated to reach 4.2 million men by the year 2024. These men and their spouses/partners and loved ones need information about various treatment options available for minimizing the impact of the disease while maximizing the quality of life.
