Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) is delighted to officially launch a video with an important message for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
We have invested $1.37 million to fund a world-leading team studying exercise medicine. This research is led by Professors Rob Newton and Daniel Galvão at Edith Cowan University in Western Australia.
Exercise has great potential as a medicine for cancer. Tailored exercise programs can reduce treatment side effects, fatigue and anxiety in cancer patients. This is very good news for the 200,000 Australian men living after a diagnosis with prostate cancer, helping to improve their quality of life.
We invite you to watch this video below and learn more about the outcomes of this research and its benefits to those affected by prostate cancer.
These outcomes are only possible because of our generous donors who have helped PCFA fund the research and even the production of this video.
Please share it with your networks and help us to increase awareness about the benefits of exercise therapy for men with different stages of prostate cancer.
