Caregivers: You're Invited to ZERO+1

Caregivers: You're Invited to ZERO+1

Join us for the inaugural ZERO+1: Prostate Cancer Caregiver Retreat, a transformative in-person gathering designed for caregivers and care partners who selflessly put the needs of others before their own. This first-of-its-kind event offers a sanctuary where caregivers can connect with others who understand the unique struggles and triumphs of prostate cancer.

Gain insights from experts who will showcase critical topics that often get overlooked, such as self-care and the emotional toll of caregiving, and learn strategies to navigate challenges and discover ways to replenish strength and resilience when it's needed the most.

Whether you're a partner, spouse, son, daughter, or friend, don't miss this opportunity to nourish the mind, body, and spirit by joining us in Chicago on October 26 & 27.

10,000+ Mile Journey to Raise Awareness and Funds Crosses the Finish Line

10,000+ Mile Journey to Raise Awareness and Funds Crosses the Finish Line

Scott Freitag, a Stage IV prostate cancer patient from Nevis, MN, completed an extraordinary 10,000-mile+ cycling and fundraising journey on Saturday, June 15, 2024. With friends, family, and supporters, he and his wife, Katy, celebrated the final leg of their ride at Itasca State Park, MN, where they presented more than $225,000 to ZERO.

Scott and Katy set out one year ago to bike around the perimeter of the United States to raise awareness and funds to fight prostate cancer and schizophrenia. With Scott on his bike and Katy tailing in a trailer, they traveled across 33 state lines. During the trip, Scott heroically juggled radiation and hormone therapy. Scott and Katy also made several stops along their route to meet with other prostate cancer patients and caregivers.

The Freitags' epic adventure caught ESPN's eye last spring, and their inspirational story was featured on Sports Center on June 22. Congratulations to the Fretiags for making an incredible impact on our prostate cancer community.

Alonzo Mourning Shares His Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Alonzo Mourning Shares His Prostate Cancer Diagnosis

Last month, basketball legend Alonzo Mourning revealed that he'd been diagnosed with Stage 3 prostate cancer. Mourning, 54, said he had surgery to remove his prostate in March and is now cancer-free. He told ESPN that he's determined to raise awareness and advocate for early prostate cancer screenings.

"ZERO Prostate Cancer commends NBA legend Alonzo Mourning for his courageous decision to share his prostate cancer journey publicly. His candid interview with ESPN serves as a rallying cry for men everywhere to take charge of their prostate health through early detection.

Mourning's powerful message cuts through the noise - understanding risk factors, knowing your family history, and getting tested regularly are the keys to getting ahead of this disease. His words carry even greater urgency for Black men, who face the highest risk of developing prostate cancer."

—Courtney Bugler, ZERO Prostate Cancer CEO & President
