Blue Tie Day – September 14

Posted on September 6th, 2012

We are organizing Blue Tie Day to increase awareness about prostate cancer. On September 14, we encourage all local men and businesses to participate and wear blue ties to the office.

Take a photo of yourself or a group at the office wearing your collection of blue ties and send the photos to Amber Recker at arecker@cancer-services.org. Photos will be submitted for publication and also posted on our blog. The group with the most people in blue ties will receive blue “Count Moments” bracelets for their entire team.

Please help raise awareness for men’s prostate cancer and health on September 14th and join us on Blue Tie Day by showing your “blue” colors.

Tie1On4 Prostate Cancer Seminar- A Success!

Posted on September 21st, 2010

by Bill Seidel

Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana and Us TOO International sponsored a successful seminar on prostate cancer and men’s health on Saturday, September 18. The seminar was held at Cancer Services and featured six speakers addressing topics, such as PSA Screening and Active Surveillance, Surgical Options for Prostate Cancer, Systemic Treatments such as Immunotherapy and Provenge, Nutrition, Exercise and Enhancing Men’s Sexual Health. Not surprisingly the session on enhancing sexual health was the most heavily attended. All speakers provided interesting information in an entertaining format. We hope to make this an annual event.

The Us TOO Information Table. Us TOO International provides extensive information on prostate cancer in all of its various forms and ramifications. The most popular publications were made available for attendees.
