One in nine American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. More than 3.1 million men in the U.S. are currently living with a prostate cancer diagnosis.
These numbers, along with the men and their families affected, inspired ZERO’s mission—zero deaths, zero prostate cancer, and the first generation free from prostate cancer.
ZERO is on the front lines investing in patient support programs, research for better diagnostics, and creating awareness. No other prostate cancer charity spends more per dollar on programs. ZERO puts every donation to good use.
Together we will ZERO out prostate cancer.
