Supported in part by a generous contribution from American Medical Systems
Us TOO International hosted a one hour, FREE nationwide teleconference program on the topic, "Intimacy and Prostate Cancer – Don’t Be Afraid to Talk About It" on Tuesday, October 30th.
Just in time for Halloween, make a date with your loved one and join us for this frank, open dialog about this challenging issue, an issue that often strikes fear in the hearts of prostate cancer patients, survivors and their loved ones. Learn about solutions that can bring intimacy back into your relationship. There will be time for questions and answers immediately after the panel presentations.
