September is on the way and it’s nearly time to Get Blue:

• Man Up and give prostate cancer the finger!
• Don’t die of embarrassment, get tested!
If you’re over 40 with a family history of prostate cancer or aged between 50-70 years old, get a PSA blood test – it may save your life.
• Wear a blue ribbon! Show your support! Donate and fundraise online at www.blueseptember.org.nz
Blue September 2015 is taking on a fresh approach to making men aware of prostate cancer.
Well-known actor Mark Hadlow is fronting the campaign with new TV and radio commercials and is also the face of Blue September.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand men and the third most common cause of cancer death in men after lung cancer and bowel cancer.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
