My Story

1 in 7 Australian men will be diagnosed with Prostate Cancer before the age of 75. With the advent of PSA blood tests to screen for PCa, survival rates over the last 30 years have improved from 58% to 92%. However LOTS of men are still unaware of the risk and don’t have a test until it is too late. The key to survival is early detection.
The high survival rate doesn’t mean that men are surviving well. Saving the lives of men with prostate cancer is not just about restoring their full life expectancy, but also about restoring their quality of life after the cancer treatment.

The prostate gland is located in a very delicate location, and cancer treatment inevitably causes lots of collateral damage. Men who are treated for prostate cancer need assistance from many different disciplines after the surgery in order to have a chance of regaining a good quality of life. Far too many men who are treated for PCa don’t get the post-operative help they need to make a good recovery.

I am really excited about this year’s event, because the funds raised will be used here in Perth to employ a specialist prostate cancer nurse. This will ensure that as many men as possible are assisted to get ALL the treatment they need, and the outcome is not left to chance. I know from personal experience how much of a difference that will make. I know that my personal contribution will make a significant difference to the lives of hundreds of men. Collectively, the ProState Active group this year will change the lives of thousands of men.
