Men's health support needed

As a prostate cancer survivor, I'm calling on all brigades across Victoria to please get behind the Movember appeal. This is the only time in Victoria when men's cancer is mentioned nationally other than the EJ Whitten football match.

As a men's health promoter, I recently got CFA and Andrology Australia talking about men's health which I hope will be imported into the CFA system in time so men will be more aware of how they should look after themselves - both physically and mentally.

I am a CFA brigade member with 15 years service, so I know first hand just how committed some of us are and the hours we can spend in the field without sleep and food (even though that is changed now). But do we really get breaks? Certainly not in rural areas in my early days.

So if you can grow a mo and want to help us raise the funds needed, please visit the Movember website. We need special care nurses as well for men's health.
