Kick back with a barbie to help fight prostate cancer

WHY not throw on your apron this month to support this year's Big Aussie Barbie to fight prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men and accounts for about 28 per cent of all male cancer cases in Queensland.

Although prostate cancer affects many Queensland families, there is a relatively low awareness of it.

That's why the Big Aussie Barbie campaign is a great idea to get blokes, their families and the community together so we can talk about men's health.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia is hosting the campaign to raise more than $1 million for their research and support programs.

Support groups help raise awareness of prostate cancer in their local communities.

Many groups invite guest speakers such as nurses, doctors, nutritionists, social workers, physiotherapists and pharmacists to provide people with more information.

There are 28 support groups in Queensland
