Proudly supporting the Australian Prostate Centre

17th September 2020

In Australia, every three hours, six men will learn they have prostate cancer, and unfortunately one will die from it. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in Australia; however the survival rate is the highest of all cancers and the solution is simple – get checked, don’t wait until it’s too late.

Henley Homes has proudly joined forces with the Australian Prostate Centre’s “Improve Your Odd’s initiative, to help put Prostate Cancer front of mind to all Australians. 

We are passionate about health and wellbeing

On and off the building site, we are passionate about health and wellbeing, and even though we’re staying home more than ever before, our mental and physical wellbeing should still be a top priority.  Even during the pandemic, you are still entitled and encouraged to schedule your regular check-ups. Prevention and early intervention are always the best outcomes.

The race is on for continued research and improved therapies

As part of the Improve Your Odds campaign, Henley will be supporting the Australian Prostate Centre at the Melbourne Racing Club Foundation Day to be held this Saturday, 19th September at Caulfield Racecourse.

Through the campaign, APC is not only urging more Australian men to get checked but also an opportunity to raise vital funds towards prostate cancer research, education and treatment.

This partnership with APC will be just the beginning of our support, as we work with the organisation to promote men’s health awareness in Australia.

Building awareness across our network

Being a male-dominated industry, especially across our network of trades and suppliers, we hope to ignite an interest in Prostate awareness, and use our voice to support APC and keep the conversation going. 

Every little bit counts to get ahead in the race. Please follow this link if you would like to donate or start a fundraising group within your own family or friends.
