Texas/Oklahoma

This year, more than 20,750 men in Texas and Oklahoma combined will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. 2,260 Texans and 450 Oklahomans are expected to die from the disease. With boots on the ground, ZERO is helping to stop the pain and suffering that too many families face from this disease.
