#PCAM17 is Here: Can We Count You In?

How will you make an impact against prostate cancer this September?

Prostate Cancer Awareness Month is here and we need you more than ever to donate and help spread awareness to help save lives. To make it easy for you, we launched a brand new website where you can get active, fundraise, and educate your community all in one place. Get started by sharing our Count Me In video with your network on social media using #CountMeIn!

The END of prostate cancer starts with YOU. Be counted in the fight and make a difference today!


Supporting Men With Early Detection

“I’m a walking testament to early detection and the benefit of education and awareness.” – Bob Evensen

Bob is the lucky man pictured here with his family. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer at age 39!

Men just like Bob die from prostate cancer because they don’t get tested early. For generations, his family has been in this fight. He lost his grandfather and two uncles to the disease, and he and his father were diagnosed with prostate cancer just a few months apart. 

By supporting early detection with a donation to ZERO today, you’re the champion who keeps families like Bob’s together. Because prostate cancer runs in his family, his two boys are at increased risk too. With your help, they can grow up in a world where sons, fathers, and all men can be free from prostate cancer. Together, we can do it!

FEATURED PARTNER

Amino

We partnered with Amino’s team to do a data-dive into prostate cancer testing access in the United States.

Analyzing Amino’s doctor database, we found that 511 counties in the United States have zero doctors who screen for or treat prostate cancer.

781,000 men age 50 and over live in these counties, which are scattered throughout the country, mostly in rural areas.

Get the full scoop here.

IN THE NEWS

New Study Offers Support for Prostate Cancer Testing

A new analysis – which re-examined data from two previous studies – shows that men who receive a PSA test appear to have a reduced risk of death from the disease.

In conjunction with the USPSTF’s new screening guidelines, this analysis is further evidence of the need for increased awareness around prostate cancer testing and shared decision making between a man and his doctor.
