Greetings!

We hope that you’re doing well and making a special effort to help raise awareness for prostate cancer during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September. 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. 

Check out the new Us TOO web page on Sexual Heath & Intimacy and the September issue of the Hot SHEET newsletter, which includes the inaugural “ Between the Sheets” advice column with answers to questions about sexual health and intimacy. 

Also visit the new Us TOO web page on incontinence, which can be a side effect of prostate cancer treatment.
Join Us for a Special, Free Webcast Event on September 29!
If you haven’t already done so, we invite you to register for the next Prostate Cancer Pathways for Patients and Caregivers in Englewood, NJ, on Saturday, September 29. This free live event and online webcast will provide 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. Presenters include: Dr. Charles Drake, Dr. Stacy Loeb, Dr. Mazyar Ghanaat, and Dr. Tracy Scheller, in addition to Dr. Anne Katz discussing sexual health and intimacy relative to prostate cancer.  Attend in person, or watch the online webcast with live audio and video from the event. Register at www.mainstreamchicago.com/ustoo-pathways-new-jersey or contact Terri at 877-978-7866 or terril@ustoo.org.
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.  Find more information on how to join a call.

Thank you to all participants, donors and sponsors of the 14th Annual SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk and Run. It was a beautiful day to build camaraderie and honor warriors while raising awareness for prostate cancer and funds for Us TOO. Donations will continue to be accepted through September 30 at www.seablueprostatewalk.org.   

On September 18 join Dr. David Crawford for a webinar on “A Treatment Option for Non-Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer.” CLICK HERE for more information and registration. 

If you’re in New York City on September 22, attend the Inaugural NYC Prostate Cancer Summit providing updates in prostate cancer - from screening to diagnosis and treatment.
