Veterans Survey
Veterans have an incidence rate for prostate cancer that is twice that of the general population. ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer is committed to bringing the Veterans community the resources, tools, and education needed to fight and detect prostate cancer even in its earliest stages. If you are a Veteran, please consider providing your feedback in a survey to help ZERO provide the most impactful programs to improve the lives of men and families. ZERO will use this information to help make decisions on how to best meet the educational and awareness needs of Veterans who are at risk of or have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. It may also be used for policy research purposes. This survey is anonymous unless you decide to provide your contact information at the end of the survey. The survey should only take between 10-20 minutes to complete and it will be open through September. To take the survey, please visit

SEA Blue 2021
The 2021 SEA Blue Prostate Cancer Walk and Run will take place September 26th in Lincoln Park, Chicago.
