2017 Fathers Day Card MEN

This year’s featured Father’s Day e-card was designed by Meghan Nikituk, a dedicated ZERO advocate, who lost her father to the disease one decade ago.

Meghan, her sister Tara, and their mother Cheryl are long-time ZERO champions who are celebrating their 10th anniversary attending the Capital Area ZERO Run/Walk this year.

Send your Dad this special e-card, or choose from a gallery of other cards to show him how much you care.


A Cancer Diagnosis, Job Loss, and Financial Burden

ZERO360 Case Study Header

At the time of their prostate cancer diagnosis, 80 percent of patients said that they needed more help than they received from their doctor. Our new patient support program, ZERO360, aims to fill that gap.

Recently, our case managers assisted a 56-year-old Stage IV prostate cancer patient who’d lost his job shortly after diagnosis. 

Read more about how they helped him get back on his feet.


A Patient’s Experience: Take Our Survey

ZERO has partnered with several patient advocacy organizations to more fully understand and represent the patient’s experience with prostate cancer and its related care, costs, and issues. Your voice is critical and will help improve the outlook for research, care and survivorship of all prostate cancer patients!

This survey is intended to capture the experiences and challenges you have encountered so that we can express those to decision-makers and the medical community. Take the survey here.

ZERO’s Hero: Jerry Woolverton

Jerry knew prostate cancer could be in his future, and after years of testing, he was diagnosed at 48.

But Jerry is not battling alone. Nine years later, Jerry and his Run/Walk team – the Woolverton Warriors – have raised nearly $16K to help find a cure for the disease.

Meet Jerry.
