Go Dry this July to support Prostate Cancer NZ

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand men; more than 4,000 men are diagnosed every year. Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand (PCFNZ) provides a range of support services to men and their families living with a prostate cancer diagnosis.

Money raised through Dry July will help fund the Prostate Cancer Foundation to provide support services to men and their families, including a freephone information line, a free counselling service, a nationwide network of support groups and Prost-FIT classes; an exercise class run by specially trained exercise professionals, designed for men living with prostate cancer, at any stage of their diagnosis.

Your support will help Prostate Cancer Foundation New Zealand provide nationwide support services to men and their families in a time when they need it most.

“There are a variety of benefits to counselling following a diagnosis of prostate cancer. Initially it’s about supporting them to come to terms with the diagnosis of the prostate cancer and what this means for them as an individual."
