How will prostate cancer affect you?
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australia. It is estimated that last year alone, almost 20,000 Australian men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, and more than 3,300 are estimated to have lost their life to this disease. More men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year than women diagnosed with breast cancer. Yet, too little recognition is given to the devastating impact this disease has on those diagnosed with prostate cancer, and the Australian community at large.
Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) is working hard to make a difference in the fight against this all-too-common disease, but we cannot do it alone. Every Australian who has a father, son, husband, partner, grandfather, uncle or male loved one has a role to play.
In only ten years, PCFA has achieved much to help Australian men and their families affected by prostate cancer, but there is still so much to do.
With no government funding, PCFA instead relies on the generosity of corporate partners, individuals and the community to help continue its essential work through a Fighting Fund. This fund helps to reduce the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men and their loved ones - those Australians who know too clearly the devastating impact that prostate cancer can have.
