Us TOO offers hope to those affected by prostate cancer through educational resources, support services and personal connections provided at no charge. With your help this season, we can empower others with knowledge and give the gift of Holiday Hope.
One contribution we received this season offered a nice note of hope which we would like to share with you for our last Holiday Hope email...
"Thank you for all your seminars, educational monthly texts, and hope. My husband, Merv Falk Sr., has successfully battled stage 4 for a year now here in southern Illinois. Between Dr. Sam Stokes, the urologist who diagnosed Merv, the SIH Cancer Institute and Dr. M. Popalzai, and lastly Us TOO, I have managed to advocate for my husband and sons. Merv is on Zytiga, Lupron injections, and prednisone, and last week scans showed his lung metastases have resolved. No bone spread, nor lymph node. He never had radiation or surgery. We expect to celebrate a family-filled Christmas, and last June celebrated our 50th Anniversary. We take each day as it comes, but I continue to rely on your up-to-date info. Bless you all."
As the year comes to a close, please donate to help Us TOO empower Diane and Merv and others with knowledge and support to make informed decisions on managing all aspects of prostate cancer. Please visit
Wishing you and yours the very best this Holiday Season
and in the New Year!
