Dedicated to Prostate Cancer Support, Education, and Advocacy.
Thank God, 2018 was a year of significant success for improved imaging, new medicines, and availability of useful information as it relates to Prostate Cancer. The field of Genomics and DNA testing is opening up a new frontier as it relates to Prostate Cancer.
There are over 30 different treatments now, and a wide variety of diagnostic tests-several of which are not invasive, or only minimally invasive!. We are beginning to see statistics that reveal we are making headway in reducing the number of deaths caused by prostate cancer. However, more than ever, we cannot slack up; the estimated new cases still exceed 228,000 nationally, with over 24,000 deaths.
We are also seeing significant ways to decrease the side effects from treatment and increase the quality-of-life in living with the disease. "Active Surveillance" is becoming a frequent choice-under carefull circumstances.
UsTOO played a significant role in making that happen. We've got it on the run! And NEED your to help to continue that trend in 2019!
Your odds are better than ever to arrive at a proper treatment plan, BUT HIGHLY UNLIKELY if you don't seek, gain, AND ACT ON, the right information!
With a challenging disease like prostate cancer, it's critical to not only become an informed patient - but to stay an informed patient! Our meetings are open not only to newly diagnosed men and prostate cancer survivors; but also significant others, family members, friends and the general public who want more information pertaining to prostate cancer."
