Greetings!

We hope that you’re staying cool as the summer heats up, and that all of the dads enjoyed a happy Father’s Day! We’re pleased to provide you with more Prostate Cancer News You Can Use . In addition to the following noteworthy information that may be of interest to you, titles of prostate cancer news articles are listed below along with a link to the Us TOO web page that provides access to the full text for each article. 

EDUCATIONAL EVENT/WEBCAST
Please join us on Saturday, June 23, for Prostate Cancer Pathways for Patients and Caregivers – a new, free educational event and webcast from Seattle. Medical experts will present a brief overview of men’s wellness and health risks including prostate cancer, followed by educational content for managing prostate cancer that’s newly diagnosed, recurring, or advanced. Symposium topics will also include genomics along with psychosocial issues related to coping with the challenges of diagnosis and treatment. Get more information and register to attend in person, or watch the online webcast with live audio and video from the event.

PATIENT PERSPECTIVE ON TREATMENT SIDE EFFECTS
A prostate cancer survivor and Us TOO support group leader, Us TOO Vice Chairman Jim Schraidt has been battling treatment side effects for the past eight years. Jim shared his personal experience in a recent post on MedPage Today

DOD CONSUMER REVIEWERS
If you’re a prostate cancer survivor and interested in advancing the progress of prostate cancer research to help conquer the disease, consider volunteering as a consumer reviewer with the Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP) of the Department of Defense (DOD) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). Get more information about the DOD CDMRP program and complete the PCRP e-nomination form (scroll down to 3rd page of the online form) and submit it as soon as possible. (Please note that the online form must be saved to your computer and the document must be submitted as an email attachment.) 

SUPPORT GROUP CONFERENCE CALLS FOR WOMEN 
Because prostate cancer can be a couple’s disease, a woman may be subject to her own concerns in addition to those she shares with her husband/partner. A Forum for Her is a regular conference call series (and invitation-only Facebook group) from Us TOO which provides women with important peer-to-peer support. Calls are free and participants are not required to share their identity with the group.
