The mission of Us TOO is to help men and their families make informed decisions about prostate cancer detection and treatment through support, education and advocacy. Us TOO meetings provide men and their families with free information, materials and peer-to-peer support, so they can make informed choices on detection, treatment options, and coping with ongoing survivorship. The national organization was founded in 1990 by five men who had been treated for prostate cancer.
If you are able to do so before your first US Too meeting, download, complete, and bring a copy of the Prostate Cancer Record and PSA Historyform with you. You may download these as a single Excel document or as two, separate pdf documents.

He is also a prostate cancer survivor and has proactively sought emerging Theranostics treatment in Australia, using Lutetium 177 as a nuclear agent targeting prostate cancer lesions. His talk is titled “My Experience with Internal Radio Isotope Therapy Through Theranostics”. Assisting is Gary Kim who will help provide audio visuals.
Please come and listen to John’s presentation about his condition and experience in pursuing this technique. As time permits, we will also have shared discussions among members. We hope to see you at the meeting! Contact Paul Mizue at 222-0425 or email@example.com for information and directions.
Us TOO Pali Momi
Meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7 pm in the Diamondhead Conference Room at Kapiolani Medical Center at Pali Momi.
Next meeting: June 18, 2019
If we have any new members, we will review his (or their) situation and invite him to ask any questions of the group. Also, if there are any issues or questions that any members would like to address, please bring them to the meeting for discussion. If there are no new members or issues to discuss, we will view a presentation by Dr. Richard Lam (a prostate cancer specialist) on the topics listed below to a prostate cancer support group in San Diego in Nov 2017.
Risk stages of prostate cancer – low, intermediate and high
Relapsed prostate cancer
Metastatic prostate cancer
This presentation covers a broad perspective of prostate cancer issues and should be of interest to all prostate cancer patients. It’s an excellent opportunity to listen to a doctor who only sees prostate cancer patients.
If you know of any new members that would like to attend the meeting, please have them call me so that I can have them fill out a form before they come. Feel free to call me if there are any questions or issues.
Spouses and significant others are welcome. Parking validation will be provided. If you attend the meeting, you may want to bring a jacket as the conference room tends to get cold.
Meets on the second Thursday of each month at noon in the Church of the Holy Cross, 400 W. Lanikaula St., Hilo
