Advocacy in Action


Advocacy in Action

In 2022, we have had many allies in Congress helping us on a myriad of prostate cancer-related topics. These range from the Veterans Prostate Cancer Treatment and Research Act to obtaining more funding for CDC prostate cancer activities. It is important that we recognize those allies for their contributions, so we are asking that you please take a moment to send an email to your Congressperson. Doing so can go a long way in encouraging them to do even more in 2023! Just click the link below to thank your legislators for supporting the prostate cancer community.

Resources for Holiday Stress

Resources for Holiday Stress

Holidays can sometimes be difficult for cancer patients and their families. For those in need of support, please consider attending a zero Us too Support Group. The groups meet regularly, and many are virtual and can be accessed by phone or by internet from any location. Other groups meet in person or offer a hybrid of virtual/in-person meetings. Another good resource is an article from MD Anderson Cancer Center, “Holiday Blues? Four Strategies to Cope,” which offers helpful strategies for those affected by cancer. » Read the article.
