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 Zero offers 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 100,000 men have been tested since 2002, saving as many as 11,000 lives by alerting men with abnormal test results to go see their doctor.
