We’re looking forward to hosting the  15 th Annual SEA Blue Chicago Prostate Cancer Walk & Run on Sunday, September 15, in Lincoln Park! SEA is an acronym for  S upport,  E ducate and  A dvocate; and blue is to prostate cancer as pink is to breast cancer. Attend in person or register as a virtual mover at no charge if you will not attend in person and want to help fundraise (even from a remote location). For a glimpse into what makes this event so special for so many people,  check out the video .

Join PCRI from September 6-8 for the 2019 PCRI 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 straightforward presentations, extended Q+A sessions, individualized small-group sessions, and a variety of fun and enriching activities to facilitate camaraderie. You can expect to gain a comprehensive knowledge of your disease and become empowered to make the best decisions for your life. Choose your strategy and win the fight! 
And be sure to check out video from the 2019 CPCC/UCSF Patient Conference on Prostate Cancer . The event took place on June 8 and was presented by the California Prostate Coalition and UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

We are proud to be a partner of BRCA Blue, a program to help educate patients and caregivers about the connection between BRCA gene mutations and prostate cancer . While some people may have heard about BRCA genes and their relationship to breast and ovarian cancers, research has shown a connection to other cancers as well – including prostate cancer. In fact, men who have a BRCA mutation are at a higher risk for developing prostate cancer than men without a BRCA mutation. To learn more about this important gene, please visit www.BRCAblue.com .

Stay cool and take care! Watch for the August 2019 issue of the Us TOO  Hot SHEET  newsletter at the end of the month; and let us know how we can help provide you with educational resources, support services and personal connections to others in the prostate cancer community.

All the best,
