Dear Editors,

As I write this, many local men with prostate cancer are struggling to ride the wave of the Omicron variant.

Their treatment has been upturned by a health system under strain, and they face increasing uncertainty about the future.

Local men and families who need information, advice, and support are urged to call Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia’s Telenursing Service.

The service is staffed by expert nurses who are specially trained in all aspects of prostate cancer care.

Whether you have questions about your treatment, or concerns about COVID’s impact on cancer patients, we are here to help.

For men who are struggling with the psychological and emotional impacts of their diagnosis, our team is available to talk.

We can also help connect you to support groups and assistance in your local area.

This year, while the pandemic continues to bluster around us, over 18,000 Australian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.

As Australia’s number one prostate cancer charity, PCFA is here to ensure no man walks alone when a diagnosis strikes.

Call us on 1800 22 00 99 or email enquiries@pcfa.org.au.

Anne Savage
Chief Executive Officer
