Tony Pasin MP is hosting his third annual Big Aussie Barbie on 26th September 2017 to raise funds and awareness for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
In 2014 I first attended the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia’s Big Aussie Barbie at Parliament House, Canberra. It was there that the startling facts about the diagnosis and death rate of prostate cancer were made plain to me - it is the most common cancer diagnosed in Australian men. The Big Aussie BBQ aims to raise awareness and understanding of the disease and raise funds to support research and awareness programs.
For the last two years I have held a Big Aussie Barbie at my office in Mount Gambier, raising $1,000 on each occasion towards the national target of $1 million for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. This year I intend to do the same, and with your help I hope to exceed previous years’ outstanding fundraising results.
With the support of the Federal Government the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre has improved the clinical management of prostate cancer by developing better diagnosis and treatment strategies for Australian men, there is however much more work to do.
It is a privilege for me to be involved with the Big Aussie Barbie and the effort to shed light on a subject that for too long has been tabooed. I am excited to be holding my third Big Aussie Barbie on Tuesday, 26 September, please come and join me to help raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
