Paul Edwards Posted April 27, 2017 Share Posted April 27, 2017 It was good that the Federal Government announced today that it would provide almost $6 million for specialist prostate cancer nurses. More Australian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer than Australian women with breast cancer and more Australian men die from prostate cancer than Australian women die from breast cancer. Despite these statistics, the Federal Government provided $20.5 million for specialist breast nurses. The existing funding for prostate cancer nurses & breast cancer nurses runs out on 30 June 2017. In November 2016 the Federal Government announced that it would continue funding for specialist breast nurses Specialist prostate cancer nurses have in doubt until today as to whether they would have jobs after 30 June 2017. We need to tell our politicians to stop this discrimination against men with prostate cancer. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
