#DoitforDad to Celebrate Fathers
Do it for Dad: Share your memories!

All throughout June, ZERO is celebrating fathers by sharing your stories about dads, granddads, and the men you love who face prostate cancer or who we have lost to the disease.

Send us your pictures and favorite memory with your dad. Visit our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram all month long for stories from your ZERO community! Use #DoItForDad on your social media channels, too.

Andrea, a Napa Run/Walk volunteer whose father is a prostate cancer survivor, share her story with us earlier this month:

“A special moment between my dad and I was when we went to the last 49ers game held at Candlestick Park together. We sat in the same two seats that my dad had sat in with his dad before. They had a special tribute at the end of the game with fireworks and music, and I looked up at my dad and he looked so happy! A moment I’ll never trade. What’s even more special is that we now have those same exact two seats in our backyard from when they tore down the stadium. My dad carved my initials in them that special night and they are still there. Now my baby daughter will get to sit in them with my dad!”

Your Men’s Health Month Checklist

research saves lives.png

In 2018, 164,690 men will be told they have prostate cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death among American men, and the most commonly diagnosed.

June is Men’s Health Month. Here are three tips to take charge of your health:

1. Early detection saves lives. Talk to your doctor about your risks and getting tested. Encourage other men in your life to do the same. Follow these testing guidelines.

2. Maintain or start eating a healthy diet. Good nutrition may help reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer, slow disease progression, and prevent aggressive disease. Learn more about eating a healthy diet.

3. Make exercise a regular part of your life. Men who exercise the equivalent of only one to three hours of walking each week have an 86% lower risk of aggressive prostate cancer. Further research has demonstrated three or more hours of vigorous exercise lowered the risk of prostate cancer death by 61%. See other exercise benefits.
