Article titles for PROSTATE CANCER NEWS YOU CAN USE are listed below along with a link to the Us TOO web page that provides access to the full text for each article. 

Us TOO is proud to be an advocacy partner with The Metastatic Prostate Cancer Project ( MPCproject.org ) , a nationwide genomic research study for men with metastatic and/or advanced prostate cancer. Patients can join online and participate by sharing their medical information and samples. The project’s first data release included de-identified clinical, genomic, and patient-reported data. The goal is to release new data every six months at MPCproject.org/data-release to help researchers better understand metastatic and advanced prostate cancer, and accelerate discoveries.  

Prostate cancer support groups provide a valuable opportunity to connect with others for solutions, support and perspective on managing every aspect of the disease – from testing to active surveillance, treatment options and side effect management. Us TOO has a network of more than 200 support groups in the U.S. and abroad. We thank all of the support group leaders who volunteer their time and leadership to provide this peer-to-peer forum for men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their loved ones, and encourage those who are interested to find an Us TOO support group near you

If you are the wife or female partner of a man with prostate cancer, we invite you to join a conference call to connect with other women facing the same challenges. Because prostate cancer is a couple's disease, the woman is often subject to her own concerns in addition to those she shares with her partner. A Forum for Her is an ongoing series of conference calls that provide women with important peer-to-peer support. To register email terril@ustoo.org or call 877-978-7866 .
