Knowledge is power… and it’s the source of real hope for effectively managing prostate cancer. But sometimes the amount of knowledge required for making informed decisions on treatment options or managing side effects can be overwhelming! 

Each person has a preferred approach for receiving and processing information needed to make good choices. It could be accessing online resources, watching a webcast or calling the Us TOO HelpLine.

Norman found a great benefit in attending local prostate cancer support group meetings. There are more than 200 Us TOO support groups across the country and abroad. The peer-to-peer format creates connections for an exchange of information and common goal of empowering each other with hope and knowledge based on relevant experience. 
"When I was first diagnosed with prostate cancer almost 18 years ago, I was overwhelmed with the wealth of information available about the disease. In some ways it was too much, with so many choices and options. A big help, though, was my friend who, at that time, was a prostate cancer survivor for over 6 years. He invited me to a local Us TOO support group where I met many more survivors and heard about their stories. Since then, after successful surgery, I have become active in several of the support groups in the Milwaukee metro area. Each group has a unique character, yet they all help to support each other in their battle to overcome this cancer. I now know more about prostate cancer than I ever thought about before I was diagnosed. I am grateful for the help Us TOO provides. I feel blessed to have become an active member of the prostate cancer survivor groups."
