ZERO’s new campaign aims to put faces and names to the almost half a million Vets with prostate cancer
On Veteran’s Day, ZERO launched a brand new campaign called “50 Vets in 50 States” – this campaign aims to bring faces and names to the many Veterans across the country battling prostate cancer – and we want you to be a part of it! Read a press release about this exciting new campaign.
We are looking for a Veteran to represent each state! So far we have Veterans representing California, Oklahoma, Ohio, Georgia, and more. You can also learn more about ZERO’s other efforts to support Veterans by clicking here.
If you’re a Veteran and a prostate cancer patient or survivor who is willing to be a vocal advocate and champion for men, we want you to join us:
- Help raise awareness around the increased risk of prostate cancer for Veterans and military servicemen
- Advocate for prostate cancer policies that would improve care for Vets at the state and federal level
- Inform providers and patients about care options via the Mission Act
“I invite all Veterans who have conquered or are still in the trenches with prostate cancer to answer this call to arms. I’m proud to represent California for the 50 Vets in 50 States Campaign, as just one of the many men nationwide in the fight of our lives.”
– Mike Crosby, retired naval aviator
