A message from our Chief of Mission and Head of Research
“Supporting research is critical. We're never going to make advances against prostate cancer unless we understand the basic science of what is happening and why it behaves the way it does. It’s really important to promote research into men's cancers – they receive less attention and visibility compared to many other cancers out there.”
- Professor Lisa Butler, PCFA Funded Prostate Cancer Researcher

- Professor Jeff Dunn AO, Chief of Mission and Head of Research, Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia
“Our Big Aussie Barbies have a fun community spirit about them. They’re important to raise prostate cancer awareness - not only with hospital staff and patients, but with visitors too.”
- Judy, Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse, Rockhampton Hospital
