ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit
February 25 - 27, 2018

The Westin Crystal City 1800 Jefferson Davis Hwy Arlington, VA 22202

ZERO started as a grassroots advocacy organization with the mission to secure federal funding for prostate cancer research. As the prostate cancer landscape has evolved, so have we. Today, we are the destination for taking action to end prostate cancer and making prostate cancer research a national priority.

This February, more than 120 ZERO Advocates will gather at our Prostate Cancer Summit and ascend Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to fight for funding and policies that will end prostate cancer. In this time of uncertainty, it is more critical than ever to preserve and advance cancer research, patient care, and access to affordable, high quality medical services.

Join ZERO as we engage with more than 125 Members of Congress that have influence over prostate cancer funding and legislative priorities. With your help, we can make a statement on Capitol Hill during the 2019 appropriations process. ZERO will provide a limited number of qualified advocates, from targeted districts and states, scholarships to attend the event.

Participating in ZERO's Summit means making a difference in the fight against prostate cancer. You have the opportunity to meet survivors, patients, caregivers, family members, and other advocates as well as get the latest updates on prostate cancer developments from ZERO's Medical Advisory Board members. Check out a sample agenda to see what to expect at the Summit.

If you are not planning on attending, we need your support in order to get all of our advocates to our nation’s capital! You'll feel proud knowing that you're supporting advocacy that will keep families together and save lives.

Your help will help the hundreds of thousands of men these policies impact every day, as well as patient programs that go directly to helping men and their families, free testing, educational programs, and more. We are fighting for you!

Let’s rally together to end prostate cancer. Support our efforts as we head to The Hill this February.

If you are planning on joining us at the Summit, please note that you will be asked to pay a nominal $25 registration to help cover travel expenses. Questions? Contact Matt Marks at, 202-303-3120.
