Making a Difference
In March 2018, the Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP) – a program for which funding has led to three new treatments and a new diagnostic screening tool – was allocated $100M, the highest level since 2001. This historic advancement in research funding would not have been possible without ZERO’s efforts in coordination with the actions of passionate advocates on Capitol Hill.
