The Hawaii Prostate Cancer Coalition facilitates US Too support groups in Hawaii. The US Too national organization was founded in 1990 by five men who had been treated for prostate cancer. The mission of Us Too is to help men and their families make informed decisions about prostate cancer detection, treatment, and survivorship through support, education, and advocacy. Us Too meetings provide men and their families with free information, materials and peer-to-peer support.
