Patients need your help more than ever before.
As the COVID-19 pandemic is upending the lives of prostate cancer patients, supporting the needs of this at-risk community is more urgent than ever before. That’s why ZERO has taken action to address the desperate needs we are hearing from prostate cancer patients across the nation during this public health crisis.
Thanks to a group of generous donors, ZERO launched the ZERO COVID-19 Support Fund with a $100,000 match to help prostate cancer patients during this time of need. As we see every day, more and more people are losing their jobs or access to medical care as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. The demand for support is skyrocketing, as many prostate cancer patients face financial and emotional distress.
It is absolutely critical to make sure that patients who are falling into financial hardship can still access the expensive treatments that are saving their lives. This new emergency fund will provide a trusted resource to address the urgent needs of prostate cancer patients during this crisis. Patients will be paired with their own personal ZERO360 case managers to address their specific needs. This service helps patients and their families access care, financial aid, and emotional support. Case managers have helped thousands of patients and secured millions of dollars in debt relief to go back into patients’ pockets.
Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, we’ve heard what patients have had to say, and we’re here to alleviate fears. This support fund will help patients and families in need, relieve anxiety, and bring a glimmer of hope. All donations up to $100,000 will be matched through June 30, 2020.
