Blue September is a month dedicated to raising awareness of the risks that cancers pose to men. The campaign encourages men to stay diligent about their health and helps to raise funds for world-class research into the prevention, treatments and ultimately cures for some of the most common cancers affecting men.
In Australia, one in two Australian men will get cancer in their lifetime – that’s 20% more men than women who will be touched by this terrible disease. Despite this statistic, men often tend to have a bad track record when it comes to looking after their own health.
This is why we would like to invite you to join us in celebrating or remembering the men who are important to you and encourage them to start thinking about their health and family histories with cancer. There are lots of great ways you can get involved to help prevent cancer in men:
