1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer by the age of 75 – which one of your friends will it be?

Darren was 44 when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. With a wife and 3 kids, it was a huge shock for Darren and his family.

Luckily for Darren, his cancer was small and slow-growing, so he didn’t need chemo or radiation – he gets regular blood tests and check-ups, and his cancer is under control.

But not all men are as lucky as Darren – we know that 1 in 10 men who get prostate cancer don’t survive. We also know that with cancer every day from diagnosis to treatment counts.

That’s why it’s so important to have this machine, at Frankston Hospital, so all men – across the Peninsula, can have a biopsy within days of needing one.

One month, two months, three months is just too long to wait for a lifesaving diagnosis.
