We Are Here For You!

Our support group includes cancer survivors (warriors), their families, and friends.

Our Mission

Crossword MissionSupport those in need. Receiving the news that you or a loved one has prostate cancer is traumatizing.  Life is suddenly out of control and fear takes hold.  Often, feelings of helplessness, guilt, isolation and anger emerge.

No one needs to face prostate cancer alone.  Our local chapter, Greater Quad Cities Us Too Prostate Cancer Support Group, provides the forum for sharing, caring and learning through its many programs and services designed for both men with cancer and their loved ones.

Community Involvement

Get Free PSA blood test available during till July 31st.  Men with a family history of cancer should be checked at age 40 to establish a base line.  Their PSA readings should stay constant.  Once a rise in PSA readings occurs, check again in 3 to 6 months.  Men over the age of fifty should get a base PSA figure if they have not gotten one yet.  Pick up a coupon and get a free PSA reading sent to your home.

Coupons will be available at the Saturday pickup for the Quad City Marathon at the US TOO booth.  Those coupons should be usable till October 31st.

See the information about this program and why it is  being done from KWQC’s news interview with Marcia Lense  http://www.kwqc.com/video?vid=423198833
