Every year about 600 men in New Zealand die of Prostate Cancer.
Why so many?
Because men don’t know how dangerous the disease is, they don’t talk to their doctor about it, and, basically… they simply don’t do anything about it, period.
That’s what Blue September is about… promoting awareness about the dangers of prostate cancer and about early diagnosis to increase your chances of beating it.
Did you know that the death rate from Prostate Cancer in New Zealand could be halved by men having regular health and prostate checks from age 40 onwards? What this means is that just through raised awareness, early detection and early treatment, 300 men’s lives could be saved every year in NZ.
That’s why Pinnacle Life is committed to raising people’s awareness of prostate cancer and why we’re a proud sponsor of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of NZ.

You should take a close look at Cancer Cover - recently launched in New Zealand by Pinnacle Life. If you’re diagnosed with cancer, the policy pays you a cash lump sum up to $250,000 to help you cope.
