Celebrating 25 years of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) celebrated their 25th anniversary today at Government House with a reception hosted by the Governor and Ms Susie Annus.

The PCFA is the peak body for prostate cancer in Australia, and has helped reduce the impact of prostate cancer, investigate new treatments, develop new testing, and fund critical research.

In his address to the audience, the Governor said that in Australia every 30 minutes a man hears the news they have prostate cancer.

“I would like to take a moment to mention one of PCFA’s most valuable assets, the wonderful dedicated supporters and volunteers, some of whom are here today, who give their time to support those impacted by prostate cancer.”

The PCFA have also developed specialist nursing programs, raised awareness of the disease, and given new hope to those affected.

Mr Bill Munro, PCF WA Chairman presented the 2020 Max Gardner Award for Distinguished Service to Ms Margaret Amm for her outstanding contributions and dedication during her ten plus years of engagement with PCFA.

Talking undersea capabilities

The Governor hosted a forum on WA’s undersea capabilities and future challenges at Government House today.

A small group of strategists, scientists, Defence and industry champions came together to discuss WA’s undersea capacities against the emerging regional and technological outlook.

“Given the great size of Australia’s territorial waters and offshore assets and the expertise in this area in WA, our state is well placed to apply its substantial skills and capabilities to this arena,” said the Governor.
