Supporting the Prostate Cancer Foundation
We’ll donate $1 on every order made at Craftzero to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia during the month of September. This includes all orders on our ranges of non-alcoholic beer, alcohol-free wine and zero alcohol spirits.
While we’re all struggling through a pandemic, it’s worth remembering that our charities and community organisations are feeling it too. They’re stretched even tighter than ever and are working harder than ever behind the scenes. They need our support.
CANCER IS STILL WITH US
The Prostate Cancer Foundation is a dedicated community organisation that we’re proud to help. They work tirelessly to reduce the impact that prostate cancer has on Australian men, their families and our communities. They provide invaluable resources and information for patients.
Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men. Almost 20,000 men are diagnosed with it every year and, after lung cancer, it is the second most common cause of cancer related deaths. 67% of men diagnosed with it are over the age of 65 and it is predicted that 3,152 men will die from prostate cancer in Australia in 2020.
EARLY DETECTION IS KEY
The Prostate Cancer Foundation creates awareness and education programmes within communities to encourage testing. Early detection is so important. Stage 1 prostate cancer has a 100% survival rate, compared to stage 4 at 36%. Knowing your family history, particularly if you’re over 40, and sharing that with your doctor is all part of their messaging. Getting that information out to communities is a hugely important matter.
PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION IN THE COMMUNITY
Along with education and awareness campaigns, the Prostate Cancer Foundation promotes and funds world leading research and runs support groups. A cancer diagnosis can be very stressful for the individual and their families. Research has shown that peer support groups with people undergoing similar experiences can be extremely effective to help relieve anxiety and feelings of isolation. Support groups encourage questions, they often have guest speakers, doctors or nurses or people who have come out the other side of prostate cancer and are living fulfilled, happy lives. There’s a community feel to these groups, that can help the quality of life for people with cancer and those who care for them.
