The Big Aussie Barbie campaign is all about getting together with family, friends and colleagues to raise funds for PCFA and encourage discussions about prostate cancer, especially with men over the age of 50 years.
Cricket legend and Big Aussie Barbie ambassador, Matthew Hayden, says hosting a fundraising barbecue is an easy way to support PCFA's work. "The Big Aussie Barbie campaign is a simple way Australians can help PCFA reach its goal. It is about turning your barbecues into Big Aussie Barbies where you can fundraise and talk to your friends and family about prostate cancer," says Matthew.
"My family understands first-hand the devastating effects of a prostate cancer diagnosis. We need to get to that point where discussing health issues, like prostate cancer, is a normal part of our conversations with friends and family."
PCFA has been running its Big Aussie Barbie campaign for over nine years, raising funds and awareness through community barbecues and other affiliated initiatives. The money raised has helped to sustain ground-breaking research projects, awareness activities and our support network.
