Prostate Cancer Awareness: March the Month

March the Month asks participants to walk 11,000 steps every day throughout March to acknowledge more than 11,000 dads, brothers, grandads, partners and mates who die from prostate cancer every year. By taking on March the Month, you can help increase awareness, raise lifesaving funds and ultimately save men’s lives.🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️

"Men need to be aware of the health of their bodies as well - prostate cancer and breast cancer are almost on the same level. It's fascinating to me that the correlation between the two is almost the same - people don't talk about it so much, but they are almost equal in numbers." - Olivia Newton John

In October 2022, we talked about breast cancer awareness and, as in the quote by the lovely and fondly remembered Olivia Newton John, prostate cancer in men does correlate very closely with breast cancer in terms of diagnosed cases, mortality rates, and rates of cure.

If we can do anything to help ourselves and our loved ones, it's knowing our bodies, knowing what feels normal and recognising when things are not normal. So let's encourage the men in our lives to give themselves the once over and, if something isn't normal, to seek appropriate help and advice.

Don't let apathy, embarrassment, or inhibition be the reason your bloke, or your brother, or your Dad, or your best mate, becomes one of the 11,000.
