Match Alert: Every Dollar Doubled to help Save a Man

Carl & Riley Lynn

Thanks to donors like you, Carl can spend more time making memories with his beautiful granddaughter, Riley Lynn.

Carl was at the end of his rope. Believing he had approval from his insurance company, he began radiation treatments for prostate cancer. But bills began to pile up when his insurance company denied claim after claim. Fortunately for Carl, he called ZERO’s support line and got the help he needed to continue his treatments.

After connecting with my ZERO case manager, I immediately knew I was in good hands. She helped me every step of the way with compassion and determination.

You gave me my life back. Finding ZERO and all the wonderful generous donors who care about men like me who are suffering was life-changing.

– Carl W. Larsen Jr., Prostate Cancer Patient, Husband, & Advocate

Right now, a man is waiting to be saved. You can be the one who makes a lifesaving gift to help a patient in need and make sure our $30,000 match is fully met! Donate today to help save a man and your gift will be doubled!

In this video, meet Ed Hoppe and learn more about how the myRisk Hereditary Cancer Test changed his life.

ZERO Sets the Standard for Prostate Cancer Charities

ZERO has a 4-Star Rating on Charity Navigator

For four of the last five years, ZERO’s strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency have earned it a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. ZERO is the ONLY prostate cancer charity to receive this best-possible rating for financial responsibility.

“ZERO’s exceptional four-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our four-star rating.”

Also this month, ZERO was recognized by The Nonprofit Times’ as one of the Top 50 Best Nonprofits to Work For. This is our third consecutive year in the top 10, and the sixth time in the top 50.

“It’s not just a terrific place to work, our impact in the prostate cancer space is unparalleled,” said ZERO CEO and President Jamie Bearse.
