ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer: “ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer is the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer. ZERO advances research, improves the lives of men and families, and inspires action.
ZERO has been on the front lines fighting for a cure for more than twenty years. Together, we’ve made a significant impact on the fight against the disease. ZERO is also rated 4-stars by Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator.
ZERO offers comprehensive support for prostate cancer patients. Starting with education, we provide millions of men and families with disease information through our website, printed materials, videos, and webinars.
Our ZERO360 team of experienced case managers help patients access financial resources, cut through insurance and Medicare red tape, and find emotional support. For men with advanced prostate cancer who could not afford treatment, our financial assistance program provided grants to more than 48,000 men.
We pioneered mobile testing for prostate cancer, alerting men across the nation to lifesaving information and reducing prostate cancer mortality rates through early detection. We continue to support early detection and free testing with local partners across the country.
The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Series is the nation’s largest event series dedicated to men’s health. For more than a decade, the series has helped raise awareness and unite men and their families across the country as a powerful force in the fight against prostate cancer.
ZERO helps lead the national dialogue on prostate cancer through our awareness campaigns, social media, website, and blog, Journey to ZERO. Our regional chapters are the boots on the ground to engage local communities and encourage grassroots action.
As the national leader in prostate cancer advocacy, we protect and grow federal research funding that has led to several key prostate cancer treatments for extending and improving the lives of men. Our annual Summit brings together hundreds of advocates from around the country to make prostate cancer a priority within our federal government, our state legislatures, and our communities.
