Us TOO Sterling offers men diagnosed with prostate cancer and their significant others an opportunity to get together in an informative, educational and supportive setting. After each month's presentation we have a question and answer session, and then a Caring & Sharing session, where we provide an opportunity to network with others who have had similar experiences. Spouses and significant others are encouraged to attend.
