"Did you know if you take out suicide and reckless death - 5 men die every hour in Australia - from a disease that could have been prevented through early detection."

"Although men are getting much better at accessing health services today there is still a generation that thinks there's no need to seek regular medical care."

"Don't let yourself be another statistic and muscle up to lift your game on men's health and make a date with your doc, it might just save your life."


Kenton Campbell

Zarraffa's Coffee founder

Although men are getting much better at accessing health services today there is still a generation that thinks there's no need to seek regular medical care. Zarraffa's Coffee founder Kenton Campbell says he is only here today thanks to an early cancer diagnosis. "On my return from our family holiday where I had coughed blood I knew something was wrong so I got it checked out and was immediately sent to the specialist.

This quick response was what saved my life along with the amazing collaboration of the surgical team, radiologists, and scientists who worked together to remove the tumour, save my face and all just in the nick of time," he says. Kenton has kicked off the PA Research Foundation's Men's Health Initiative this month by pledging an annual gift to the PA Research Foundation and is throwing his weight behind the initiative as a key male spokesperson.

"Early detection is the key, I can only imagine if I had waited too long. The outcome would have been a lot different. Please, don't do that to yourself or your family. Go get checked today," says Kenton.




Jamie Charman

AFL Legend

AFL legend Jamie Charman has thrown his muscle behind the PA & Spirit Group Men's Health Campaign. He says watching his father undergo treatment for prostate cancer was his motivation to get checked out.

"Waterworks is a pretty important issue to men so if they are 40 or over they shouldn't put off a visit totheir GP. And because we now have a family history of Prostate Cancer, I am certainly making an appointment to seemy doctor," says Jamie.
