This year more than 33,140 men in the Mid-Atlantic region will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and an estimated 4,220 men are expected to die from the disease. ZERO supports men and families in their own backyards by providing patient-centric programs in addition to our Run/Walk events.

Our Mid-Atlantic Chapter Director, Caitlin, leads the charge in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. If you’re in the Mid-Atlantic area and want to get more involved in prostate cancer, a disease that affects one in eight American men, please contact Caitlin.
