It’s Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM) and we know you are ready to raise your voice for all those affected by prostate cancer! In late August, we got a running start with ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walks in Asheville, Cleveland, and Lehigh Valley, PA. Last weekend, we hosted races in Philadelphia, Boston, and Tyler, TX.

Thanks to all of our participants and fundraisers who joined us so far to make a difference for patients and their families!

Join ZERO at an upcoming Run/Walk in these cities:


24 Run/Walks in 36 Days

Meet Laurel Philibin: Wife, Nurse, and Advocate

This time last year, Laurel was juggling doctor’s appointments, treatments, and being the primary caregiver to her beloved husband John as he fought metastatic prostate cancer.

 


Your donation is doubled this September!

 

Just three months after his diagnosis, John lost his battle to prostate cancer at age 53. To honor her beloved husband, Laurel has become a passionate champion for early detection and more research for new treatments.

Too many husbands, fathers, grandfathers, and brothers are lost to prostate cancer and this September we need your help. Getting tested for prostate cancer is critical to catch the disease early.

Will you join Laurel in making a donation to ZERO this month? Your gift will give 1,500 men a free prostate cancer test, and every dollar will be doubled by our match during PCAM only. This means you can double your impact, double the lives touched, and double the lives saved.
