We are Houston's largest and oldest prostate cancer support group.
Tex US TOO is a chapter of the world's largest non-profit 501(c)(3) support group in the world. Our parent group, Us TOO International, Inc. was founded in 1990 by 5 men in the Chicago area. We have since grown into a world leader in actively promoting wide public awareness of prostate cancer. Us TOO is governed by people directly affected by prostate cancer and our mission is one of hope.
We provide a forum for sharing, caring, and learning from medical experts as well as the opportunity to discuss your thoughts and concerns with other people affected by prostate cancer. We offer a monthly meeting (except for the month of August), where medical experts speak on treatment options and developments in treating prostate cancer. While we do not offer medical advice, we also provide a platform for informal discussions where you may bring your questions about treatments and post-treatment issues.
Whether you are recently diagnosed, are currently under treatment, or wish to learn more about prostate cancer, we welcome you.
