Prostate Cancer Research Backed at $110M


$110 Million in Prostate Cancer Funding Approved

FANTASTIC News! The House Appropriations Committee is backing a historic $10M increase in funding for the Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP). This brings the total PCRP budget proposal at the Department of Defense (DoD) to a program record $110M.

This win is all because of ZERO’s Champions from around the U.S. who stormed Capitol Hill in February during the ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit in Washington, D.C.

This is a major victory for patients and families that are in the fight right now as this funding will ensure as many as a dozen new brilliant ideas could become tomorrow’s treatments and diagnostic tools.

– Jamie Bearse, ZERO CEO & President

Learn more about this record-breaking increase in proposed funding and the next steps to getting it approved by Congress.

Gene Mutations Don’t Discriminate Men vs. Women


Ellen Hoppe video

After Ed Hoppe was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he learned that it was caused by a hereditary gene mutation. This information, combined with the extensive family history of cancer, prompted Ed’s two daughters to investigate if they had the same mutation as their father.

In this video, hear how Ellen Hoppe, Ed’s youngest daughter, received genetic testing to find out if she may be at an increased risk of developing cancer within her lifetime.
