Mission

ZERO — The End of Prostate Cancer is the leading national nonprofit with the mission to end prostate cancer. ZERO advances research, improves the lives of men and families, and inspires action.

Why ZERO?

ZERO has been on the front lines fighting for a cure for more than twenty years. Together, we’ve made a significant impact on the fight against the disease. Learn more about the progress we are making!

Patient Support

 

ZERO offers comprehensive support for prostate cancer patients. Starting with education, we provide millions of men and families with disease information through our website, printed materials, videos, and webinars. Our ZERO360 team of experienced case managers help patients access financial resources, cut through insurance and Medicare red tape, and find emotional support. For men with advanced prostate cancer who could not afford treatment, our financial assistance program provided grants to more than 48,000 men.

 

Early Detection

 

We pioneered mobile testing for prostate cancer, alerting men across the nation to lifesaving information and reducing prostate cancer mortality rates through early detection. We continue to support early detection and free testing with local partners across the country.

 

 

 

Awareness

 

The ZERO Prostate Cancer Run/Walk Series is the nation’s largest event series dedicated to men’s health. For more than a decade, the series has helped raise awareness and unite men and their families across the country as a powerful force in the fight against prostate cancer.

ZERO helps lead the national dialogue on prostate cancer through our awareness campaigns, social media, website, and blog, Journey to ZERO. Our regional chapters are the boots on the ground to engage local communities and encourage grassroots action.

 

Advocacy & Research

As the national leader in prostate cancer advocacy, we protect and grow federal research funding that has led to several key prostate cancer treatments for extending and improving the lives of men. Our annual Summit brings together hundreds of advocates from around the country to make prostate cancer a priority within our federal government, our state legislatures, and our communities.

Strategic Plan

Strategic PlanOur Journey to ZERO Strategic Plan is a guide for making progress in saving lives and keeping families together. It reaffirms our mission and outlines our resolve in the face of this deadly disease. It commits us to expanding our reach into local communities to work in concert with our constituents, advocating for increased and better directed research funds, and providing education and support to improve patient outcomes.

It is our principal responsibility to illustrate the future we seek through our networks, events, and digital outreach. And it is our ambition to become the standard by which other nonprofits will be measured. Join us on the journey to ZERO prostate cancer!
