WASHINGTON, Sept. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer is partnering with Protect Your Manhood, a New Hampshire seacoast based start-up founded by prostatitis survivor and marketing maven Chris Sargent, which offers a culturally relevant resource to promote prostate health.
"Prostate cancer is just as common as breast cancer, but the social stigmas associated with prostate health present barriers that most men simply will not conquer, alone," said Chris Sargent, Founder of Protect Your Manhood. After suffering from prostate issues, Chris began developing best practices and resources that men and their sexual partners can use to improve prostate health and performance. Protect Your Manhood will donate a portion of proceeds to ZERO.
"Protect Your Manhood is a survivors story, passionately shared man to man," said Jamie Bearse, Chief Strategic Officer and Executive Vice President of ZERO - The End of Prostate Cancer. "ZERO is very grateful for Protect Your Manhoodʼs ongoing financial commitment and appreciate their distinctive voice in addressing menʼs prostate health."
Nearly every treatment breakthrough in prostate cancer in the last five years has been made possible, at least in part, by funding secured by ZERO. And every dollar donated to ZERO is leveraged into $250 for research to find a cure for prostate cancer. With support from organizations like Protect Your Manhood, ZERO plans to continue working to end prostate cancer.
