September is Almost Here. How Will YOU Raise Awareness?


Show who you are fighting for!

It’s August, which means the countdown to Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) is on. This year an estimated 31,620 men will die from prostate cancer, but we all can help by raising awareness and funding to help more men get tested. Early detection saves and lengthens lives!

Through the end of September, a $50,000 match will double the impact of every donation. By giving now, you’re giving twice as many men a chance to receive free testing and learn more about their risk of prostate cancer.

Join thousands across the country who are spreading the word by sharing their passion to end prostate cancer on social media. Download and print the #CountMeIn sign, snap a pic, and then share it on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Remember to use the hashtags #CountMeIn and #endprostatecancer in your posts for a chance to receive a shout-out from ZERO on social media!

Genetic Testing


Hoppe Family video still

Cancer Can Come from your Mom or Your Dad

The Hoppe family has a very extensive history of cancer. When Ed Hoppe was diagnosed with prostate cancer his daughters, Emily and Ellen, took the myRisk Hereditary Cancer Test and found out that they were BRCA1 positive coming from their dad’s lineage. They then went to their extended family on their dad’s side and told everyone that could be affected by this mutation to get tested. Knowing this genetic information allows Emily and Ellen to get a step ahead and take measures to reduce their risk of breast or ovarian cancer.

A Daughter’s Point of View

Athena Bogdanos knows all too well that prostate cancer doesn’t only affect men, it affects families, friends, and communities. Her close-knit family stuck together throughout her dad’s cancer battle, but sadly they lost him late last year. They are now joining together again, but this time as Team Hoboken Strong, in honor of Deno, and will be participating in the ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk – New York City.
