Letters: Prostate cancer volunteers deserve thanks


This National Volunteer Week (17-23 May), Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia is shining a light on volunteers across the country who are making a tangible difference in the fight for a cancer-free future.

Dedicated volunteers run more than 130 prostate cancer support groups around Australia, helping thousands of men and their partners through what is often, the most challenging experience of their life.

In addition, thousands of fundraisers volunteer their time every day to help us fund lifesaving research into more effective treatment options, to ultimately save lives.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our charity and are the reason that survival rates continue to improve for Aussie men impacted by prostate cancer.

In Australia, nearly 17,000 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year, and around 95 per cent of men will survive their diagnosis.

There’s still more work to be done, but for now, we want to say thank you.

If you’re reading this, and you volunteer, thank you.

Your efforts save lives and charities, like PCFA, can’t survive without you.

For support, or to give back, visit pcfa.org.au or call 1800 22 00 99.

Professor Jeff Dunn AO,

CEO, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
