ALERT: Critical Prostate Cancer Research Funding Saved!
For the second consecutive year, ZERO has successfully led the fight to save medical research at the Department of Defense (DoD)! We couldn’t have done it without the dedicated support of Congressional champions, grassroots advocates, and like-minded organizations.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) conferees agreed to remove several provisions from the Senate version of the NDAA that would have effectively eliminated $90M to $100M in prostate cancer research and hundreds of millions of dollars in research for other diseases and conditions.
“Unlike anywhere else, the DoD uniquely targets critical gaps in medical research and utilizes a two-tier review process that includes patients impacted by the disease. The model is incredibly successful: creating three treatments for advanced disease and a genomic marker to signal if the disease is aggressive or indolent before treatments begin.”– Jamie Bearse
Thank you to all of our ZERO champions and advocates who stepped up to lead the charge in securing this vital funding on behalf of prostate cancer patients and their families! Read more.

“…My dad is coming to the [Sacramento] run/walk. He will be pushed in his wheel chair and he wants to walk the last ten steps over the finish. His motivation for this is to encourage other men to know their PSA.” – Team 4 Pete
