#CountMeIn: I’m Fighting For…

sami.png

The best way to raise awareness about prostate cancer is to make it personal. This September, we’re encouraging everyone to do just that during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

Tell everyone who you’re fighting for: print off this sign, take a picture, and then share it — with ZERO, the web, and everyone you know on social media! If you share it on social media using hashtag #CountMeIn or email it to us we’ll send you a brand new (never before seen!) ZERO bracelet.

It is vital that early detection is a national priority, and we need your help to make it happen! Prostate Cancer Awareness Month shines the spotlight on our community’s efforts to end the disease, and we’re spreading the message nationwide all month long. With 19 Run/Walks, countless community health fairs, endurance events, and a documentary screening on Capitol Hill, we’re turning the country blue to ensure no more men suffer from this terrible disease. 

How can you make an impact this September? Join us to find out. #CountMeIn

Nine races. More than $600k raised. More than 5,000 participants and donors who supported the cause. One fantastic spring Run/Walk season!

We are grateful to have such wonderful partners in communities across the country that make these events possible. Were you with us at a race this spring? We want to see your photos! Share them with us on social media so we can relive all the wonderful moments while looking ahead to our summer and fall season. Check out our Top Ten photos from the Spring races!

Our CEO Jamie attended quite a few events this year, sharing his experiences in Chicago, Wichita, and Hartford on our blog. You can still get in on the fun and register for a Fall race near you.

“Drs. Kirsch, Gandhi, and Lowentritt are exemplary leaders in the urology community as well as true patient advocates. Their decades of experience in the urology space will serve our Medical Advisory Board well in our mission to improve the lives of the patients and families we serve.

NEWS: Treatment for Aggressive Prostate Cancer Shows 71% Lower Risk of Spread or Death

According to a new study, when hormonal therapies fail to abate prostate cancer, enzalutamide, an oral medication, can offer an alternative. Hear more about what these results mean from Dr. Alicia Morgans, Chair of our Medical Advisory Board:

“Both the PROSPER and SPARTAN studies provide men with recurrent prostate cancer that has become castration-resistant but is not yet metastatic with an option for treatment where there was none before. They can get cancer control without compromising on quality of life. Huge win for men and their families.”
