Prostate cancer is the most common men’s cancer diagnosed in Australia. It is estimated that 20,000 Australian men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, and more than 3,300 lose their life to this disease.
That’s Nine men a day!
More men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year than women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Yet, less recognition is given to the devastating impact this disease has on those affected by it.
Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) is a broad-based community organisation and the peak national body for prostate cancer in Australia. We are dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners, families and the wider community.
We do this by:
•Promoting and funding world leading, innovative research into prostate cancer
•Implementing awareness campaigns and education programs for the Australian Community, health professionals and Government.
•Supporting men and their families affected by prostate cancer through evidence-based information and resources, support groups and Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurses
PCFA receives Government funding for specific projects and relies on the generosity of individuals, the community and partnerships to carry out our essential work.
