Who will you be thinking of this Christmas?

This Christmas we asked you to send back a bauble for our tree, with the name of someone you’re thinking of this Christmas.

As we hang your beautiful messages on the PCFA tree, we’re reminded of the strength and solidarity of our community. We’re grateful for those we love, those we’ve lost, and those who are facing tough times this Christmas.

Many of you sent back messages to Kathy and her family – all four of her brothers and two of her nephews have faced prostate cancer.

Read more about Kathy’s story and donate to our Christmas appeal to fund life-saving research to protect families like hers.

If you’d like us to name a bauble for someone you love, please email enquiries@pcfa.org.au and we’ll place a ball on the tree for you ahead of Christmas day.
