ZEROHour: September 2016 Issue

Denny Moore_Faces of Hope

Share Hope This September

This September, Prostate Cancer Awareness Month shines a national spotlight on prostate cancer, mobilizing communities in the fight to end the disease. Support ZERO’s Faces of Hope campaign to help raise $15,000 towards much needed education kits for newly diagnosed men. Together, we can give hope to families in their first steps of fighting this terrible disease so that no man has to fight alone. Each kit includes important information about treatment, side effects, and resources related to prostate cancer as well as the inspirational stories of men and families who have battled the disease. Your gift today gives life-changing education to patients in need.

This month we’re also proud to showcase the men who inspire us everyday with our Faces of Hope campaign. Join us and share your story of hope on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #FacesofHope.

ZERO Honors Prostate Cancer Survivor with Lifetime Achievement Award

In celebration of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and our 20th anniversary, we are proud to announce the inaugural ZERO Lifetime Achievement Award. This year’s recipient is Peter Crescenti. Peter, a prostate cancer survivor, helped create ZERO’s Endurance program and has been an active member of the ZERO family ever since, competing in nine endurance events, attending ZERO’s annual advocacy summits, and raising more than $76,000.

“I am proud to be part of ZERO’s efforts to help change the perception of prostate cancer. You can be young, healthy, and active, yet men in their 40’s are being diagnosed with prostate cancer daily. It’s important for us as cancer survivors to set the example for others.”
