Patient Resources: ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer

ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer is a national organization dedicated to advancing research, encouraging action and providing education to support men and their families.

The organization offers a number of resources including a Prostate Cancer 101 Brochure, detailed information on detection and diagnosis and co-pay assistance. Advocates can participate in runs/walks, golf and endurance events nationwide to fundraise for research.

Most recently, the organization released ZERO education survey results showing that less than half of men diagnosed with prostate cancer are referred to an oncologist. Additional findings revealed how patients seek information and choose treatment. The survey was the organization’s first patient education survey with the goal of better understanding the experience of those affected by prostate cancer.
