Us Too: Shreveport/Bossier City Prostate Cancer Support Group
What is Us TOO?
What began back in 1990 with five men in Chicago and an idea to form the first prostate cancer support group has grown over the past 25 years into Us TOO International providing comprehensive educational materials and resources along with support services that include more than 300 volunteer-led support groups across the U.S. and abroad. Us TOO was founded by—and continues to be governed by—people directly affected by prostate cancer. The mission of Us TOO is to provide hope and improve the lives of those affected by prostate cancer through support, education and advocacy/awareness.
Why a Support Group?
Prostate cancer survivors who attend meetings—sometimes along with spouses/partners—find invaluable information and perspective from their peers who quite often have “been there – done that” relative to experience with a prostate cancer treatment or side effects. The interactive format of a support group or chapter meeting facilitates conversations to exchange information among group members assembled with the common goal of empowering each other with the knowledge that comes from experience.
