Prostate cancer is a disease as vicious as it is silent.
Each year hundreds of truckies are diagnosed , many die simply because they refused to see their doctor.
So we are taking a stand.
‘Parts for Parts’ is the most significant cause campaign we have ever launched.
A call to arms to raise awareness and funds, support truckies and lead change in our community.
Even though prostate cancer is the leading cancer diagnosed in men, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia receives only limited government funding.
Please give what you can.
The Killer facts
- Prostate cancer kills more Australians than breast cancer
- Extended hours sitting means Truck drivers are amongst those most at risk.
The Big Hope
If detected EARLY, prostate cancer has one of the highest 5 years survival rates after diagnosis – close to 92%.
