We are pleased to announce the first Us TOO support group call
for the women behind the men affected by prostate cancer.

Because prostate cancer is a couple's disease, the woman is often subject to her own concerns in addition to those she shares with her partner. A Forum for Her will be a regular call series which will focus on women and offer peer-to-peer support to address these concerns.

The first call will take place - January 31, 2018 - 12:00 pm Central
Please note that space is limited.
To register for this call, contact Terri Likowski at 877-978-7866 or terril@ustoo.org.

A Big Thank You to Jerry

How to Reverse Markers of Prostate Cancer.

Despite prostate cancer being the second leading cause of cancer death in men, a raging debate has ensued as
to whether men should have annual PSA blood tests. The scales are tilting in favor of Life Extension®’s
multi-decade campaign to educate men about the importance of regular PSA screening. Not only are there proven
ways to reverse rising PSA levels, but breakthrough treatments can enable safer diagnosis and curative treatment
without the side effects associated with conventional surgery and radiation.
