Helping to create a healthier world for men: – where there is sufficient information to make informed choices about what course of action will be the best to take at a time when a man has been identified as having a possible prostate issue.

Objectives:

  • Creating awareness of prostate cancer and related issues is the main objective with spin offs being about men’s health in general
  • Supporting the cause of Prostate Cancer Research to help create opportunities for men to have informed choice when confronted by those horrible words “you have cancer”
  • Empower men to take control of their health and make better choices in life
  • Create an environment where new and enduring friendships can be built with the common thread being Men’s health awareness, and understanding that it is not just about blokes, but their whole community and their family

The Male Bag Foundation is registered as a Tax Deductible Charity. 100% of the money raised through sponsorship and donations will go to support prostate cancer and to fund research into this uniquely male disease. We are proud to have David Parkin as our official patron.

A SHORT NOTE AND VIDEO FROM PETER STEVENS
Hi Guys,
Please find attached the Win News report on the handover of funds to the Ballarat Health Services cancer unit.
Our presence is now being acknowledged in the region and throughout Western Victoria so a big congratulations to everyone that assisted in fund raising over the last 3 years.
So far over 225 men have undergone biopsy testing for prostate cancer on the machine without any trauma or infection since the machine has been installed.
It would be a great outcome if many more machines could be become available in other districts as these actually change men’s outcomes and treatment .
Here’s to a great year,
Peter Stevens
