Time to hit green for pink and blue
Event to drive home need for regular tests
PROSTATE cancer awareness is the focus of this Saturday’s Think Beyond Pink and Blue Golf Day.
Gayndah Golf Course will host the event with competitors teeing off at 10am.
Ross Gomersall from Prostate Cancer Australia will be talking to the players about the need for men to have a regular PSA test for prostate cancer.
Mr Gomersall is a cancer survivor, and brother of the famous Rugby League referee Barry Gomersall (known as the Grasshopper).
“There will be a number of men 40 years old, and older, playing and it is this group of men who should be having regular tests,” North Burnett Prostate Cancer support group convenor Russ Tyler said.
“They are a hard group to contact and possibly even harder to convince to get tested so we hope Ross’ talk will jolt them into action,” Mr Tyler said.
