Review for ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My husband and I have been advocating with ZERO -The End Of Prostate Cancer since 2012. It has been our pleasure to do so in our home state of Ohio and on Capitol Hill. As the mother of four sons it is so important to raise awareness for and end prostate cancer.

Review for ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

On June 19, 2009 my life forever changed. My husband and I were given the devastating news: he had an aggressive form of prostate cancer. However, I was not about to sit back and do nothing! I started advocating and raising awareness for this horrible disease that it seems no one talks about. In 2012 I was contacted by ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer to become an advocate and was honored to be asked to join the “family”! Working with ZERO has given me so many more opportunities to help raise awareness and to be part of ending prostate cancer. Every year ZERO invites advocates to Washington, DC for a Summit to learn about how to do more in locally in our states, and we get to speak with our elected officials to share our journey with them and to encourage them to keep research and funding for prostate cancer in the FY Budget.
