Zero's-Drive Against Prostate Cancer


It was a Great Day At The Fair-volunteering for Zero's-'The Drive', with the U of M Physicians Institute For Prostate and Urologic Cancers!  
I love this program at the U, as the doctors, nurses and volunteer staff are the reason my dad is still alive today.
I had a wonderful time registering men for screenings, while sharing my connection with this deadly disease.  
I am so thankful for the MANY women who gave their men a gentle nudge, and in some cases, a forceful PUSH-to have the screening.   

 Over 600 men received a FREE Prostate Cancer screening at the MN State Fair this year!  

Free Testing: The Drive Against Prostate Cancer

It’s free. No Appointments. No insurance needed. Snacks! And it features a big flat screen TV with satellite cable and leather chairs to watch the big game while you wait. It’s the way every doctor’s office ought to be!

ZERO — The Project to End Prostate Cancer understands that busy schedules make it hard to fit in regular doctor visits, but early detection is critical. That’s why we offer the Drive Against Prostate Cancer, the only nationwide mobile prostate cancer-testing program. The Drive tours from coast to coast and border to border to offer FREE prostate cancer testing.

More than 110,000 men have been tested since 2002, saving more than 7,000 lives by alerting men with abnormal test results to go see their doctor.

Help Us Double the Drive

In celebrating a decade of saving lives, a charitable foundation has challenged us to double the number of men that we screen. They will match dollar for dollar, up to $1,000,000, all donations made towards dramatically expanding the most successful prostate cancer testing campaign in America. This is your chance to show America your commitment to ending prostate cancer through early detection!
