Prostate Cancer Research in Jeopardy
Prostate cancer research needs your help! Nearly $1B in medical research at the Department of Defense is in unprecedented jeopardy. Provisions in this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) effectively mean the elimination of life-saving research for prostate cancer and 30 other diseases at the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).
Prostate Cancer Awareness Month shines a national spotlight on the disease. Every September, we work alongside our Champions to ensure men are aware of their risk and are being tested for prostate cancer. Early detection saves lives, and last month you helped us spread the word from coast to coast.
We couldn’t have done it without your passion. With ZERO Run/Walk events in 15 cities and more than 50 community events staffed by Champions, we informed thousands of men about their risk. In Kentucky, Ray Hensley took what he learned at the ZERO Summit and created the Inaugural Prostate Cancer Weiner Walk. From California to Ohio, Linda Hoetger, Shanita Perry, and our Proclamations Team garnered more than 250 proclamations throughout the month in their local cities and towns. In Tennessee and Wisconsin, members of Team ZERO competed in IRONMAN events to raise funds and awareness for the disease.
