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.
