Receiving the news that you or a loved one has prostate cancer is traumatizing. Life is suddenly out of control and fear takes hold. Often, feelings of helplessness, guilt, isolation and anger emerge. No one needs to face prostate cancer alone. Us TOO provides the forum for sharing, caring and learning through its many programs and services designed for both men with cancer and their loved ones.
As one of the prostate cancer support and education group for the South Sound, Us TOO Olympia meets once a month at St Peter’s Hospital to listen to local medical experts on a variety of topics pertaining to Prostate Cancer. This is followed by an informal discussion amongst chapter members.
Our goal is to support, educate and advocate for any person touched by prostate cancer.
Family members are encouraged to join us at our meetings.
