The thunderbolt falls on an inch of ground but the light of it fills the horizon.
Ralph Waldo Emerson’s words are etched in stone at the site of the Battle of Concord – where the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” was fired, igniting the American Revolution. I spent the Fourth of July at the North Bridge listening to a recital of the Declaration of Independence but I kept coming back to Emerson’s words.
Each family stricken and struggling with prostate cancer has a story to tell. It’s our job at ZERO to have each one of those stories be the lantern of hope and promise to light the way for others impacted by the disease so they may find their way.
Independence Day also would have been the 75th birthday of my grandfather who fought prostate cancer for more than a decade. We build bonds over the beacons of our stories and they strengthen our resolve to pull together and fight with everything we can muster. If you’re tired of seeing prostate cancer ravage families and if you’re ready to share your story and to stand with us to make a difference, you’ve found a home in ZERO.
