Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand

    With your generosity, together we raised:

    $146,915.75 - Thank You!

    "A really big THANK YOU to Farmers and all their customers who supported the Blue September Appeal this year. We are thrilled to hear $146,915.75 has been donated and this will support the work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation's support, awareness and research programmes over the next year. And thanks too for helping us to keep our men healthy and get the message out to our Kiwi men to "get checked."

    Graeme Woodside - CEO, Prostate Cancer Foundation NZ

    Every year around 600 men die in New Zealand of prostate cancer. This affects our fathers, sons, brothers, grandfathers every year - our men! Many of these deaths can be prevented if the disease is detected early enough. This is not an 'old man's disease'; men younger than 40 have been known to get prostate cancer.

    So at Farmers, we get right behind Blue September to help keep New Zealand men healthy.

    Blue September is all about raising awareness around prostate cancer, particularly because early detection can be the best protection.

    The Prostate Cancer Foundation receives no government funding and they rely on the generosity of people to help them support men and their families who are going through the journey.
