Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is Almost Here – Become a ZERO Champion Today!


Prostate Cancer Warrior Champion

The countdown to Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) has officially started! Next month is YOUR month. With your help, we’ll support more men understand their risk for the disease, while providing critical support to the men who already have been diagnosed. This year, it is estimated that 34,130 men in America will die from prostate cancer. Without a doubt, you are needed in the fight to end prostate cancer.

Through the end of September, every day is an opportunity to raise awareness and make a difference. There is no better time to step up in September and become a ZERO Champion! Champions have all been touched by this disease and they don’t want anyone else to suffer. They find strength, support, and inspiration from each other to accomplish amazing feats in their local communities and across the country. Learn more how you can serve in this leadership role for your community.

Veterans and Prostate Cancer Survey


Veterans Prostate Cancer Survey

Veterans have an incidence rate for prostate cancer that is twice that of the general population. ZERO is committed to bringing the Veterans community the resources, tools, and education needed to fight and detect prostate cancer even in its earliest stages. Your feedback is critical to help us provide the most impactful programs to improve the lives of men and families. ZERO will use this information to help make decisions on how to best meet the education and awareness needs of Veterans who are at risk or have been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

If you are serving or have served in the armed forces, we need you to participate in our Veterans and Prostate Cancer Survey. Thank you for sharing your insight and experience with us and please feel free to share with other Veterans in your community. The survey is open to all Veterans, whether or not they have been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

New Bill to Establish a National Clinical Pathway for Veterans and Prostate Cancer


Veteran's Prostate Cancer Treatment and Research Act

Exciting news! The Veteran’s Prostate Cancer Treatment and Research Act (H.R. 4880) was reintroduced on the House floor by Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. (R-FL-3) and Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin (D-MI-8). ZERO is proud to be an ongoing supporter of this bipartisan bill and its provisions to establish a national clinical pathway for prostate cancer within the Veterans Health Administration.

This standardized system of care would enhance treatment and increase access to the highest quality care for the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the Veterans Health Administration. No such clinical pathway currently exists for prostate cancer. Veterans face prostate cancer at rates nearly two times higher than civilians. Please take two minutes to encourage your representative to show their support for Veterans with prostate cancer.

New Study: Inherited Genetic Factors’ Impact on Prostate Cancer Risk and Treatment

We know that prostate cancer may be written in some men’s genes, but so are instructions for discovering new treatments and understanding family risk. If we want to better understand prostate cancer, we have to better understand genes. That’s why the genetic information of prostate cancer patients is so important.

The PROMISE study seeks to learn more about the roles genes can play in improving outcomes and/or for prostate cancer patients. This study helps Dr. Channing Paller and Dr. Heather Cheng to better understand how prostate cancer care can be tailored precisely based on a patient’s unique genetic profile. PROMISE is completely free. Patients continue with their current provider and don’t need to leave home to participate. Read this blog post to learn more about the PROMISE study.
