This month is Blue September!
September 18, 2016

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, grandfathers – gone! This happens because men don’t know how dangerous the disease is, they don’t talk to their doctor about it, they simply don’t do anything about it. This has to stop. Deaths from prostate cancer can be prevented if the disease is detected early enough.
