We hope that you’re doing well and keeping cool as we approach September – Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. 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. 

If you haven’t already done so, please register to 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 encourage you to participate in the 14th Annual SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run in Lincoln Park on Sunday, September 9. If you aren’t able to attend the event, please consider registering as a virtual mover at no charge and inviting your network of friends and family to support you in recognition of SEA Blue. It’s an important opportunity for raising awareness for prostate cancer during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and raising funds that help support the work of Us TOO. 

And if you’re in Los Angeles on September 7-9, check out the 2018 PCRI Prostate Cancer Patient Conference. 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. 

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.

LivingWith is a new FREE app for mobile devices. It’s designed to help manage life with cancer by connecting with loved ones, asking for help, improving communication with doctors, and staying organized – all in one place.

Also, be sure to check out, a new website with educational content on several types of cancer, including prostate cancer.
