We are the Houston area’s largest non-profit 501(c)(3) prostate cancer support group
Originally, Tex US TOO (Houston) was a chapter of US TOO International. It was the nation’s first prostate cancer support group, founded in 1990. Us TOO grew into a network of 200+ support groups that helped transform fear into hope and resignation into determination for men and their families.
In 2021, US TOO International merged with ZERO-The End of Prostate Cancer (https://zerocancer.org). Thus, Tex US TOO (Houston) has become a chapter of ZERO. With the ZERO and Us TOO merger, patients now have access to a single prostate cancer support powerhouse.
We provide a forum for sharing, caring, and learning from medical experts as well as the opportunity to discuss your thoughts and concerns with other people affected by prostate cancer. We offer a monthly meeting (except for the month of August), where medical experts speak on treatment options and developments in treating prostate cancer. While we do not offer medical advice, we also provide a platform for informal discussions where you may bring your questions about treatments and post-treatment issues.
Whether you are recently diagnosed, are currently under treatment, or wish to learn more about prostate cancer, we welcome you.
