This year, more than 16,910 men in Texas and Oklahoma combined will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. 2,180 Texans and 400 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. For more information on the current prostate cancer stats in the Texas/Oklahoma chapter, please click here. To see information on the entire nation, please click here.
We already have a strong presence in many Texas communities and are growing our efforts across Oklahoma. We’re currently building connections and programs to serve local men and families in both states. If you’re in Texas or Oklahoma and want to get more involved in ending prostate cancer, a disease that affects one in eight American men, please contact Tracy.
