ABOUT THE PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION OF AUSTRALIA
PCFA is a broadly-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 and their families.
Promoting and funding world leading, innovative research into prostate cancer.
Implementing awareness and advocacy campaigns and education programs for the community, health professionals and Government.
Helping men and their families affected by prostate cancer through evidence-based information and resources, support groups and prostate cancer specialist nurses.
“We are all working towards one goal, to ensure Aussie blokes don’t die before their time of prostate cancer. Without community donations, we simply wouldn’t be able to walk alongside men when this bastard of a disease strikes.”
- Professor Jeff Dunn AO, CEO Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia
“When a man receives a prostate cancer diagnosis, his life changes in an instant. Most men and their families have trouble coming to terms with it. But PCFA are with them for the long haul - and that’s why I’ll be walking 72km with my dogs this September.”
- Craig, Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse – VIC
