Blue September is the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s national awareness campaign!
Every year around 600 men die in New Zealand of prostate cancer. That is more than 600 fathers, sons, brothers and grandfathers! This is effecting so many of our whanau because we under estimate how dangerous the disease is and are embarrassed to speak to a gp about it. Blue September is about getting the word out and raising awareness, a check can take as little as 5 minutes and ultimately save your life!
Unfortunately The Prostate Cancer Foundation receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of people to help support men and their whanau who are going through this journey.
