200,000 Australian men are living with prostate cancer.
20,000 more will be diagnosed this year.
And 3,500 will die of the disease.
A significant number of Aussie men are suffering from the physical and emotional side effects of treatment, and many of them are confronting that battle without adequate support.
We're striving to change the game in a way that no other organisation can – raising vital funds for lifesaving research, awareness, and support programs.
That's why we need you to get involved and be part of our vision.
What You Can Do To Help Us Spread The Word
We have developed two sets of simple posters for you to download and print it in A4 or A3 size and display them in your workplace, community space or any other area you can think of.
We want to get as many of these posters out into the community as possible.
Posters with key messages about prostate cancer
Posters that bust some of the myths about prostate cancer
Social media can be a great way to spread the word and raise awareness. If you or people you know are active on social media this is an easy way to take part.
