ZERO and Us TOO Join Forces


Exciting News: ZERO + UsToo

Breaking news for the prostate cancer community, ZERO is merging with another impactful and inspiring prostate cancer nonprofit, Us TOO International. The coming together of these two organizations comes at an urgent time in the fight against prostate cancer with nearly 250,000 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year alone.

The unification of these two leading prostate cancer organizations will provide a new comprehensive support system for prostate cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. In addition, the merged entity will increase prostate cancer awareness and advance research and access to care through a united advocacy platform.

The merger will be finalized this September during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, the perfect time to kick off and celebrate this new patient-centric powerhouse. For more information, read the press release.

April is National Minority Health Month


AutoNation: Let's drive out prostate cancer

April marks National Minority Health Month and ZERO is thrilled to have AutoNation as a champion in the fight against prostate cancer. This month, AutoNation is partnering with ZERO to encourage men at high-risk to get screened. They have added ZERO to their “DRVPNK” campaign, which partners with cancer charities from coast to coast to raise and donate millions of dollars to cancer research and treatment.

Prostate cancer survivor and ZERO Champion Chas Rodgers is one of the faces of AutoNation’s campaign. We are grateful to have AutoNation’s help raise both awareness and funds all month long. For more on National Minority Health Month and the importance of early detection for Black men due to a double risk of diagnosis and death from prostate cancer, follow ZERO online.
