Us TOO in Seattle

Prostate Cancer Education, Support and Advocacy

Us TOO in Seattle Prostate Cancer Support Group meetings are open to men with prostate cancer, their loved ones, friends, and caregivers. Our goal is to provide comprehensive information on prostate cancer, its diagnoses, treatments, side effects, current research and other aspects that may be used to help us make informed decisions about the disease. Us TOO in Seattle monthly meetings offer peer-to-peer interaction and support, plus unbiased information from experts in areas related to prostate cancer including surgery, radiation, medication, psychology, healthy lifestyles, and more.

Spouses, partners, other family members and caregivers are welcome.

 Each Us TOO in Seattle meeting starts at 6pm with a facilitated discussion between participants followed by an educational presentation at 7pm by a healthcare provider or other speaker.  Meetings end promptly at 8:00.

Next Meeting  

Wednesday, October 28, 2020, 6 -8 pm ONLINE 

Roundtable discussion among members and guests, with input and commentary from Dr. Ed Weber, 6 pm to 8 pm.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Diana DeLucia, PhD 

Topic: Immunotherapy

Dr. Diana DeLucia received her B.A. from Washington & Jefferson College and her Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health Department of Infectious Disease and Microbiology. During her Ph.D.  she studied the underlying mechanisms by which cellular cholesterol regulates the spread of HIV-1 infection throughout immune cells in the body and how this contributes to disease progression to AIDS. As a postdoctoral research fellow in the Lee Lab and Fred Hutch, Diana has been applying her formal training in immunology to the development of immunotherapies against prostate cancer. Her primary research interest and focus is the identification of adoptive T cell therapies to block the deadly progression of prostate cancer and allow affected men to live longer and healthier lives.
