ZERO Launches COVID-19 Support Fund


Double your Donation

Men contact ZERO every day, desperate as COVID-19 adds new problems to the crisis of facing prostate cancer. Jobs and health insurance are being lost. Treatments are being put on hold. Stay-at-home orders are keeping family from visiting the patients they care for.

Right now, you can do something to help a man that has nowhere else to turn. Today, a group of generous donors is offering $100,000 in matching gifts to create the ZERO COVID-19 Support Fund.

Give patients immediate help

Your donation will be doubled to give immediate help to prostate cancer patients. With your help, ZERO will pair men who need it with their a personal ZERO360 case manager who is expertly trained to manage crisis situations.

By giving, you will make sure that patients who face financial hardship can still access the expensive treatments that are saving their lives. ZERO360 offers thousands of patients a way to find access to care, financial aid, and emotional support when they need it most.

June Events: Postponed or Going Virtual


Run/Walk Photo

At ZERO, our top priority is – and always has been – the health and well-being of prostate cancer patients and their families. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we are continually prioritizing the health and safety of our community.

That is why all in-person events (Run/Walks, Tee-Offs, etc.) have been postponed, rescheduled, or made virtual through the end of June. For events beyond June, we are closely monitoring the CDC’s guidelines and will continue to communicate any updates as soon as we are able to do so.

Specific Event Updates

Thank you for your support, patience, and understanding as we work to keep our community safe.

For events that will become virtual rather than held in-person, attendees can expect an exciting, brand new experience that still invokes a community feel. More details will be announced soon!

All your Telemedicine Questions, Answered


What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is more than just a buzzword — it’s a new reality (and often, the only option) for many prostate cancer patients and doctors’ offices right now.

That’s why ZERO teamed up with Dr. Jonathan Rubenstein of Chesapeake Urology Associates to bring you a new video series that answers many frequently asked questions about telemedicine.

Head to YouTube and watch videos where you’ll learn about what to expect in a telemedicine appointment, why telemedicine is beneficial right now, and more. Not into watching videos? We’ve got a written guide just for you — click the link below!
