Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) is almost here and it is all about YOU. With your help, we are making prostate cancer a national priority. Tell who you’re fighting for and raise awareness on social media and beyond. It’s easy: Visit the website, print off the sign, take a picture, and then share it—with ZERO, the web, and everyone you know on social media! Use the hashtag #CountMeIn or email it to us and we’ll send you a brand new ZERO bracelet for free!

Because of you, more men will know about their risk and talk to their doctor about testing. More patients and families will know they are not alone.

Do it today! #CountMeIn #PCAM18

 

 

 

 


Five Ways to Get Involved During #PCAM18

Champions Bring the Message Home

From Florida to Texas and beyond, ZERO advocates are meeting with their elected officials this month to let them know how important prostate cancer research funding at the Department of Defense is to patients and families nationwide. This critical research, which has resulted in three new treatments and a new diagnostic tool, is essential in filling the pipeline with cutting edge treatment options and one day, a cure. A fantastic job to our champions who are working hard year-round in their local communities!

A few of those cities will also feature a special treat: a performance by ZERO spokesman Jimmy Charles!

ZERO CHAMPIONS IN ACTION

Anglers for the Cure

ZERO Champion Adriana Somberg lost her husband Reed to prostate cancer when he was only 59. Now, she “considers her mission to spread awareness and advocacy about prostate cancer ‘my full-time job.'”

In February she came to DC to tell her elected officials why prostate cancer research funding is so important, and this month she’ll host her annual “Anglers for the Cure” charity fishing tournament. She’s on a roll raising awareness and nothing can stop her now!
