Many issues in life are overwhelming; getting diagnosed with cancer is one of those. I’ve been very very fortunate. Many of my friends and colleagues that are part of this “brotherhood” aren’t as fortunate. Prostate cancer is terribly underfunded (and misunderstood) compared to other Cancers because men don’t talk about it. They don’t engage because of the personal nature of the problem.
ZERO 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. ZERO is a 501c3 charity, a Better Business Bureau member, and 94.4 cents of every dollar donated goes to research and programs.
