Reaching $110M in Research Funding


Fighting for research on Capitol Hill!

Thank you to our amazing ZERO champions from around the country who stormed Capitol Hill last month as part of #ZEROSUMMIT19.

We are one family connected by a single purpose and together we will make a difference!

– Chris Hartley, Prostate Cancer Survivor & Summit Attendee

Patients, survivors, caregivers, and supporters had hundreds of meetings with elected officials, asking them to stand behind prostate cancer research funding. The ZERO Summit was several packed days featuring nationally-recognized experts giving the latest on prostate cancer research and treatments, patient education, and community building.

Now back in their home states, these champions continue the fight for research funding, and we need you to join them in speaking out! Members of Congress are discussing research funding right now, it only takes a few minutes to ask your Representative to sign the Bishop-King Letter requesting $110,000,000 for the Prostate Cancer Research Program.

Applauding our New “Bold for Blue” Award Winners!


The Bold for Blue Awards

A major highlight of The Summit was an evening of recognition for 2018’s most inspiring “Bold for Blue” champions. ZERO rolled out the “blue” carpet, showing our deepest gratitude to more than 20 fundraising rockstars.

Raising dollars for ZERO makes a profound difference, fueling programs that ensure patients and families get the support they need. The inaugural Bold for Blue awards highlight the tireless efforts of ZERO Run/Walk participants, independent event organizers, and endurance athletes, who have gone to impressive lengths to make a lasting impact in the fight to end prostate cancer.

My Take on Prostate Cancer and the “Waiting Game”

Little did he know that a regular check-up in December would result in a prostate cancer diagnosis. Vic said, “Yup. I’m dumb. The truth is, most men under 50 are fairly dumb when it comes to understanding men’s health… » Read more in Vic Lombardi’s blog
