We wanted to do our part in the fight against prostate cancer by collaborating with Zero the End of Prostate Cancer.  It is the #1 most commonly diagnosed and #3 most deadly cancer for men, showing just how dangerous this disease can be.  Every year, 150 prostate cancer patients, survivors, and their caretakers/spouses gather in Washington D.C. for a summit.  During this 3-day event, they discuss the state of the science, ZERO’s patient support and educational programming, and how to advocate for research funding in their local community.  In order to support this summit, we donated 150 light blue ties to the attendees, matching the ribbon color of prostate cancer, giving the participators a sense of solidarity and uniformity.  A man dies of prostate cancer every 20 minutes. We wanted to emphasize the importance of prostate cancer research in the hopes of finding a cure, and support our friends at over at Zero the End of Prostate Cancer. Keep up the good fight!
