In addition, ZERO is proud to be listed as number six on the “Best Nonprofits to Work For” list this year and second among small nonprofits.

In the Community: The Andrew Zweig Ripple Run

 

Andrew Zweig was diagnosed with Stage IV prostate cancer when he was only 50 years old. Known by friends and family as “Papa Z,” he was close to everyone he met and a dedicated father, husband, and friend. For the next eight years, Andy fought. He fought for a cure for himself and his family. He dedicated his life and his body to studies so that his grandchildren wouldn’t have to know this cancer. Andy lost his battle in 2017, but left behind a legacy of giving.

This year, his family is continuing that legacy by honoring his memory with The Andrew Zweig Ripple Run in at Rockland Lake State Park in June. Read more of Andrew’s story.


Save a Man


SaveAMan-NewletterMasthd-FINAL.jpg

The cost of my care has turned my world upside down and put me in a depression trying to figure out how to pay for the treatment. We had to move out of the house and live in our camper trailer at a county park to keep up with the medical bills.” – Ted, Stage IV prostate cancer patient

Just like Ted, many men with prostate cancer are struggling and are overwhelmed with no place to turn. They are at a desperate crossroads medically, financially, and emotionally and they urgently need our help. You can help a man get through the hardest time in his life with a gift today.

Support our Save a Man campaign, so men like Ted don’t have to be fighting alone and living in a camper. Donate today and every dollar of your gift will be matched! You can help us reach a lifesaving $20,000 goal to help 80 prostate cancer patients in need by the end of May.
