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.
