Like TC-Las Vegas, I have been involved with the local Us Too group. The group meets once a month and each meeting features a speaker on a subject related to PCa. There are also opportunities to mingle and meet others with similar situations and concerns. Unfortunately, they meet on the third Thursday of each month, when, without fail, my wife is either at school (persuing her master's) or up in Utah on real estate business. So, I'm home in charge of the feeding, homework etc. with my 13-year-old. So I miss most of the meetings, but help them with publicizing the group's efforts.
I think the strongest aspect of our local US Too group is its founder and leader, Lew, who started it many years ago. When I was first diagnosed, the ACS gave me his number and from there forward he was always there to pick up the phone, open the door to his home, and help in any way possible. He's over 18 years out of surgery and doing fine. He's extremely knowledgeable about the latest local and regional resources for guys with PCa, in terms of diagnoses and/or treatments. And he continues to be an advocate for us guys -- working with the politicos, watching for potential legislation in our favor etc. He was a God-send for me.
BUT -- like TC-Vegas (Tony) said, this forum has been invaluable because of the range of PCa guys and spouses who come here with their questions, suggestions and encouragements. I never thought I'd find such a place on the Internet.
Best to ya,
