Style Magazine - - Style | It's A Bloke Thing -

For Toowoomba Mayor Paul An­to­nio, the IABT lun­cheon is a cause close to his heart after hav­ing a prostate cancer di­ag­no­sis in his late 40s.

“I think the most re­mark­able as­pect of the IABT cam­paign is the aware­ness it has raised about men’s health,” he says.

”It has pro­vided a lo­cal plat­form for us as men to talk about a sub­ject that was pre­vi­ously con­sid­ered a pri­vate mat­ter – of­ten to the detri­ment of our fam­i­lies.

“As mayor, I am heart­ened by any group work­ing for the good of our com­mu­nity.

“It’s al­ways a great day out to think about what a fan­tas­tic re­gion we live in, how gen­er­ous and will­ing peo­ple are to help each other and, im­por­tantly, to take stock about our health.”
