Thanks for the URLs to these very interesting and informative publications. The UsTOO organization is a great support organization for us PCa patience. Like David, I too am disappointed with our local support group and find that groups like UsTOO and of cause, HealingWell, are wonderful sources of information, advise and compassion.
Wishing for all the best for you.
