ZERO's Impact

Where the money goes


Men helped with the assistance of our Co-Pay Program.


Men tested for free with our mobile testing units.


Education materials provided to men and families.


Men are alive due to reduced prostate cancer mortality rates.


I am thankful beyond words for the assistance provided by ZERO. It has enabled me to receive life-extending prostate cancer treatment. I now have the gift of time to spend with my wife and three young grandchildren, who I never believed I would see grow up.
