Greetings!

We hope that you’re enjoying the summer season and keeping cool. In addition to the following updates and information that may be of interest to you, prostate cancer news article titles are listed below along with a link to the Us TOO web page that provides access to the full text for each article. 

Join us at the next Prostate Cancer Pathways for Patients and Caregivers in Englewood, NJ, on Saturday, September 29. This free event/webcast will provide a brief overview of men’s wellness and health risks including prostate cancer, followed by medical experts presenting educational content for managing prostate cancer that’s newly diagnosed, recurring, or advanced. We’ll also feature a presentation led by the experts on sex and intimacy relative to prostate cancer.  Get more information and register to  attend in person, or watch the online webcast with live audio and video from the event.

And check out the recorded video from the Seattle Pathways event held on June 23. For easy access, content from the entire day is cataloged with a link to specific segments noted by topic.

We’re excited to announce that registration is now open for the  14th Annual SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run in Lincoln Park on Sunday, September 9. It’s an important opportunity for raising awareness for prostate cancer during the month of September (Prostate Cancer Awareness Month) and for raising funds that help support the work of Us TOO. If you can’t attend in-person, please consider registering as a virtual mover at no charge and inviting your network of friends and family to support an activity of your choice in recognition of SEA Blue.  

Astellas is hosting The Astellas Oncology C3 Prize – a global challenge designed to inspire innovative non-treatment ideas that may improve the lives of cancer patients, caregivers, and their loved ones. This year’s challenge will focus on solutions for cancer care in low- and middle-income countries, which bear a disproportionate burden of the global cancer epidemic. Winning applicants in three categories will receive grants and access to resources to make their life-changing ideas a reality. The deadline to enter the contest is July 25. Visit C3Prize.com for the full terms and conditions, including eligibility requirements.

Join PCRI from September 7-9 for the 2018 Prostate Cancer Patient Conference and get face-to-face with prostate cancer experts in every field. Hosted at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott, the PCRI conference is a full-featured educational experience for prostate cancer patients and caregivers. Each day consists of easy-to-understand presentations, extended Q+A sessions, treatment-based breakout sessions, and support groups that cover every major prostate cancer topic. Register now.  
 
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.

And check out cancer.com, a new website with educational content on several types of cancer, including prostate cancer.
