You’re helping people like Mark with prostate cancer treatment

Sadly, a common story among many men in Australia, Mark was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

"My diagnosis came as a complete shock. At that point I didn’t really think too deeply about the seriousness of the diagnosis," Mark said.

His prostate cancer was frighteningly well advanced and Mark was referred to begin treatment at Mater Cancer Care Centre immediately. He began six gruelling rounds of chemotherapy treatment.

Mater hospitals see more than 500,000 patients every year.


For Mark, who is now in remission, personalised treatment control could have provided him with a better quality of life during this tough period. The good news is, we have already made great headway in improving the lives of men with prostate cancer thanks to supporters like you. We aim to continue this funding through our Mater Cars for Cancer lottery.
