It is a sad and frightening reality that today, nine men in Australia will die from prostate cancer. And one in six will be diagnosed with prostate cancer by the time they turn 85.
Put those numbers together, and the men in your life are at serious risk of succumbing to this horrible disease.
This has to change—and significant investment in life-saving cancer research is the best way that you can make a difference.
By supporting the work of prostate cancer research at Mater, you will be helping researchers find improved ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat prostate cancer.
Mater researchers are currently studying the molecular events that underpin prostate cancer: how it starts, how it spreads in the body and how it moves into the bones. Other research teams are working to identify which genes and proteins predispose men to developing prostate cancer.
And in an exciting development, Mater researchers are conducting world-leading research into a potential vaccine for prostate cancer.
